Adaptive Algorithm with Short Adaptation Time

S. Gendron, P.R. Bélanger

The traditional delay-plus-first-order model from process control was used as the basis for a new adaptive control algorithm. Model poles were assumed known, but zeros were allowed to vary. The special features of the model were used to devise a rapid algorithm, whose convergence was studied not asymptotically, but in finite time. The effects of noise and of deviations from model structure were studied. This algorithm, which was originally developed from ad-hoc principles, has proved to be quite reliable in actual applications.
