Zero-error tracking control with pre-assignable convergence mode for nonlinear systems under nonvanishing uncertainties and unknown control direction. (English) Zbl 1390.93310
Summary: This work addresses the tracking control problem for a class of high-order Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) nonlinear systems with unknown control direction and nonparametric uncertainties. By integrating a matrix (rather than scalar) rate transformation with Nussbaum gain, we develop an accelerated robust adaptive control that exhibits several attractive features: (1) it is able to achieve full-state zero-error tracking despite unknown control direction and non-vanishing uncertainties; (2) with the proposed control scheme, the whole tracking process seamlessly consists of the first phase of steering the tracking error into an adjustable small residual region with accelerated convergence rate and the second phase of further driving the error to zero; (3) before reaching the residual region, each component of the tracking error is forced to decay at an accelerated rate that can be pre-assigned; and (4) the resultant control action is continuous differentiable everywhere without involving excessively large initial driving effort.
