Typical neural-adaptive control approaches update neural-network weights as though they were adaptive parameters in a continuous-time adaptive control. However, requiring fast digital rates usually restricts the size of the neural network. In this paper we analyze a delta-rule update for the weights, applied at a relatively slow digital rate. We show that digital weight update causes the neural network to estimate a discrete-time model of the system, assuming that state feedback is still applied in continuous time. A Lyapunov analysis shows uniformly ultimately bounded signals. Furthermore, slowing the update frequency and using the extra computational time to increase the size/accuracy of the neural network results in better performance. Experimental results achieving link tracking of a two-link flexible-joint robot verify the improved performance.
