A Partial-State Feedback Model Reference Adaptive Control Scheme
This paper develops a new partial-state feedback model reference adaptive control (MRAC) scheme, which has full capability to deal with plant uncertainties for output tracking and desired flexibility to combine the advantages of full-state feedback MRAC and output feedback MRAC. For partial-state feedback MRAC, plant-model matching is achievable as with full-state feedback control, while the controller structure enjoys less complexity as compared with an output feedback MRAC design. Adaptive partial-state feedback control designs are developed for relative-degree-one plants and for general plants. Both adaptive control designs ensure closed-loop system stability and asymptotic output tracking. New results are presented for plant-model matching, error model, adaptive law, and stability analysis. New features of partial-state feedback MRAC are addressed, including its design flexibility. Simulation studies are conducted whose results verify the effectiveness of partial-state feedback MRAC.
