Abstract
Direct command generator tracker based model reference adaptive control (MRAC) algorithms are applied to the dynamics for a flexible-joint arm in the presence of sudden load changes. Because of the need to satisfy a positive real condition such MRAC procedures are designed so that a feedforward augmented output follows the reference model output thus resulting in an ultimately bounded rather than zero output error. Thus modifications are suggested and tested that 1)incorporate feedforward into the reference model''s output as well as the plant''s output and 2)incorporate a derivative term into only the process feedforward loop. The results of these simulations give a response with zero steady state model following error and thus encourage further use of MRAC for more complex flexible robotic systems.
