Abstract: Amid design of fuzzy control systems, one important way is to regard the fuzzy systems as approximators to approximate the unknown functions in the system. Concerning the unknownness of the unknown functions, generally there are two cases: a completely unknown case, and a partly unknown case. Clearly, if an unknown function belongs to the latter, the knowledge available about the function should be utilised as much as possible in the system development. In this paper, our goal is to design a fuzzy controller for a class of model reference adaptive systems with uncertainties, which can correspond to the either case.

Keywords: fuzzy control; fuzzy approximator; system stability; Lyapunov synthesis; MRAC; control design; model reference adaptive control.
