Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new rubust design scheme of a variable structure type model reference control (VS-MRC) which can be applied to linear time-varing plants. Our idea is started from the hypothesis that the plant consists of two parts, i.e., one has time-invariant parameters and the other has time-varying parameters. We consider the former the nominal part of the plant and the latter a kind of disturbance to the nominal one. In this design scheme, the ordinary VS-MRC is adopted to the nominal part and the signum function is introduced to eliminate the influence of the disturbance.
