Stable adaptive fuzzy control for MIMO nonlinear systems. (English) Zbl 1231.93054

Summary: An indirect adaptive fuzzy control scheme is presented for a class of multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear systems whose dynamics are poorly understood. Within this scheme, fuzzy systems are employed to approximate the plant’s unknown dynamics. In order to overcome the controller singularity problem, the estimated gain matrix is decomposed into the product of one diagonal matrix and two orthogonal matrices, a robustifying control term is used to compensate for the lumped errors, and all parameter adaptive laws and robustifying control term are derived based on Lyapunov stability analysis. The proposed scheme guarantees that all the signals in the resulting closed-loop system are uniformly ultimately bounded (UUB). Moreover, the tracking errors can be made small enough if the designed parameter is chosen to be sufficiently large. A simulation example is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
