Robust tracking control of electrically flexible-joint robots is addressed in this paper. Two important practical situations are considered. The fact that robot actuators have limited voltage and that current measurement is subjected to noise. Let us notice that a few solutions for the voltage-bounded robust tracking control have been proposed. In this paper, we contribute to this subject by presenting a new form of voltage-based control strategy. It proves that the closed loop system is BIBO stable, while actuator/link position errors are uniformly–ultimately bounded stable in agreement with Lyapunov’s direct method in any finite region of the state space. As a second contribution of this paper, we present a robust adaptive control scheme without the need for computation of regressor matrix and current measurement, with the same result on the closed loop system stability. This novelty gives a simple robust tracking control scheme for both structured and unstructured uncertainties based on the function approximation technique. The analytical studies as well as experimental results produced using MATLAB/Simulink external mode control on a flexible-joint electrically driven robot demonstrate high performance of the proposed control scheme.
