Abstract

The aim of this research paper is to design a disturbance observer (DO)-based robust adaptive tracking control of uncertain nonlinear system subject to unknown nonlinear disturbance.Design/methodology/approachTo achieve desired control objectives, i.e. nonlinear trajectory tracking and disturbance attenuation, firstly, a control scheme is designed based on the adaptive criteria integrated in sliding mode control (SMC). In the second step, the disturbance estimation criterion is designed followed by patching with the controller obtained in the first step. Following the control development, using the Lyapunov candidate function, the stability criterion is ensured by designing appropriate adaptive gains.FindingsIn this paper, a robust adaptive nonlinear tracking method is presented. The findings includes the design of adaptive gains for the control parameters involved in the robust SMC technique, i.e. adaptive criterion is designed for the switching gain as well as for the gain used in sliding mode surface. Furthermore, a disturbance estimation criterion is developed to attenuate nonlinear disturbances with variable frequency and magnitude. Finally, the disturbance estimation scheme is combined with the control technique to obtain DO-based control (DOBC) algorithm.Practical implicationsSliding mode control is a powerful robust control method.
