Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7268)


Most of the machines and plants are tricky for mathematical description thus insufficiently described model can affect the control process. This paper presents Modified version of Model-Free Adaptive controller for fast-changing, hard-to-control plants. Motivation for presented work was insufficiency of currently available solutions, which were in most cases unable to control proposed experimental model.
