Adaptive Systems in Control and Signal Processing 1983 is a compendium of papers presented at the International Federation of Automatic Control in San Francisco on June 20-22, 1983. One paper addresses the results through comparative alternative algorithms in adaptive control of linear time invariant and time varying systems. Another paper presents a method in computer simulation of a wide range of stable plants to achieve an alternative approach in designing an adaptive control system. The book also compares the stability and the sensitivity approach involving the design of model-reference adaptive systems. The authors involved explain that the sensitivity concept determines the "dynamic speed of adaptation," while the stability concept focuses on finding a linear compensator for any deviant signal. One paper proposes an indirect adaptive control algorithm for MIMO square full rank minimum phase systems, while another paper discusses the application of the discrete time multivariable adaptive control system, to non-minimum phase plants with an unknown dead time. This book can prove valuable to engineers and researchers of electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering. It can also be helpful for technicians and students dealing with automatic control and telecontrol.
