ECSE 6480 Adaptive Systems (Spring 2011)

The course covers the theory and application of adaptive control. The course considers mostly linear time invariant systems, and also some specific classes of nonlinear systems. The topics covered in the course include: what adaptation is and when it is needed, off-line and real-time parameter estimation algorithms, direct and indirect adaptive methods, deterministic self-tuning regulators, Lyapunov stability theory, input-output stability, model-reference adaptive control, adaptive observer, stability and convergence of adaptive algorithms, and robustness issues. Adaptive algorithms will be developed in both continuous time domain and discrete time domain. Gain scheduling, implementation aspects of adaptive control, and applications to physical systems will also be discussed.

* We will be using the RPI LMS this semester, which will be linked to the content on this site.
