Nonlinear and Adaptive Control

ABOUT THE COURSE:

This is an advanced course on control system design, covering fundamental aspects of adaptive control. A general methodology is developed for systematic design of controllers for systems with parametric uncertainty. It is expected that the students interested in taking this course should have a basic understanding of Lyapunov Stability Theory and working knowledge of MATLAB/Simulink.
