A control design technique known as the Model Reference Neural Network (MRNN) method has recently been developed. In this method, neural network controllers are trained so that the controlled system response mimics that of a desired reference model. Since the controller can be trained using experimental test data consisting of command and response state data, it is equally applicable to linear and nonlinear systems. The MRNN procedure was experimentally evaluated by applying it to several systems which demonstrated nonlinear behavior typically found in servosystems, including significant stick-slip friction, backlash, and positionally dependent gravitational torques. The performance of the MRNN was then compared to both PID and linear model reference controllers. Experimental results indicate that the accuracy of the MRNN controller typically equals or exceeds the linear model reference controllers.
