Abstract

In this paper we address the adaptive and nonadaptive model reference control problem for a class of multivariable linear time-varying plants, namely index-invariant ones. We show that, under appropriate controllability and observability conditions, this class of plants admits a fractional description in terms of polynomial differential operators and, as such, allows for a polynomial equation-based controller design. We also show that, for a model reference control objective, the controller can be designed by solving a set of algebraic equations. Further, when the plant parameters are only partially known, we employ a gradient-based adaptive law with projection and normalization to update the controller parameters and establish the stability and tracking properties of adaptive closed-loop plant. Finally, we present a simple example to illustrate the design and realization of both the adaptive and nonadaptive controls laws.
