At popular request Prof. Widrow will return to present Part 3 of his series, which will focus on the adaptive inverse control of nonlinear systems.? Adaptive inverse control, a novel method of self-correcting system dynamics uses feed forward control to optimize plant performance. Unlike conventional control methods, adaptive inverse control uses feedback to control the variable parameters of the controller itself, offering enhanced flexibility and precision in the control of unknown variable systems.
Adaptive filtering techniques have been used successfully in a variety of signal processing problems, including antenna systems, channel equalization, echo cancellation, and spectral estimation. This presentation will discuss how these techniques are being used in control systems. Adaptive inverse control is suited to both stable and unstable plants, minimum phase and nonminimum phase plants, and linear and nonlinear sy stems. Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) plants are supported as well as single-input single-output (SISO) plants. Control of plant dynamics is treated separately, without compromise, from optimal control of plant disturbance.
