In real life feedback control applications of mechanical systems, friction and time delays are two important issues that might have direct effects on the performance of systems. Hence, an adaptive nonlinear observer based friction compensation for a special time delayed system is presented in this thesis. Considering existing delay, an available Coulomb observer is modified and closed loop system is formed by using a Smith predictor based controller as if the process is delay free. Implemented hierarchical fe…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
