These include various robust techniques, performance enhancement techniques, techniques with less a-priori knowledge, nonlinear adaptive control techniques and intelligent adaptive techniques. There are several themes in this book which instance both the maturity and the novelty of the general adaptive control. Each chapter is introduced by a brief preamble providing the background and objectives of subject matter. The experiment results are presented in considerable detail in order to facilitate the comprehension of the theoretical development, as well as to increase sensitivity of applications in practical problems BT - Frontiers in Adaptive Control SP - Ch. 5 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/6425 DO - 10.5772/6425 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-05-08 ER -
