Keywords: self-tuning control, minimum variance control strategies, parameters estimator, control system stability.
This paper describes two particular cases of the generalized minimum variance control strategy, usable for an adaptive self-tuning controllers design. The first strategy assures a compensation of output error (and a minimized control variance), and the second contains (additionally) a compensation mechanism of the reference value. Both approached control strategies have as result the synthesis of specific control law embedded in a self-tuning controller. A comparative study is performed concerning the stability of both control systems.
