Neural Network Based Direct Adaptive Backstepping Method for Fin Stabilizer System
Based on the backstepping method and the neural networks (NNs) technique, a direct adaptive controller is proposed for a class of nonlinear fin stabilizer system in this paper. This approach overcomes the uncertainty in the nonlinear fin stabilizer system and solves the problems of mismatch and controller singularity. The stability analysis shows that all the signals of the closed-loop system are uniformly ultimate boundedness (UUB). A simulation example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
