Implementation of an adaptive controller on a TI TM 990 microcomputer Tooba, Bahram


The thesis tests the implementation of an adaptive identifier and controller on a Texas Instrument TM 990 microcomputer system. The adaptive algorithm was proposed by Martin-Sanchez [20], and was selected because of the small amount of computation needed in comparison with methods such as recursive least squares estimation. The controller is similar to a simplified minimum variance controller used in self-tuning regulators. The thesis describes the adaptive algorithm and the hardware and software used in the microcomputer implementation of this method. The results show operation of the algorithms for first-order and second-order processes.
