Structure Preserving Adaptive Control of Port-Hamiltonian Systems
In this technical note, an adaptive control scheme is presented for general port-Hamiltonian systems. Adaptive control is used to compensate for control errors that are caused by unknown or uncertain parameter values of a system. The adaptive control is also combined with canonical transformation theory for port-Hamiltonian systems. This allows for the adaptive control to be applied on a large class of systems and for being included in the port-Hamiltonian framework.
