Design and Analysis of Model Following Control Structure with Nonlinear Plant
Abstract. Linearization methods of the object: input-state and input-output linearization are used usually in a standard feedback control system. However, these systems are sensitive to the changes of nonlinear characteristics of the plant. These changes can be compensated in two types of control systems: in the model following control (MFC) and adaptive. The article presents the first solution and contains: miscellaneous structures of linear control systems with model following, brief description of the linearization’s methods, simulation example of the course control of vessel and the advantages of this solution.
