Chapter 4 covers the important topic of 'controllers in adaptronics', beginning with a presentation of adaptive and robust control algorithms using conventional model reference adaptive control (MRAC) techniques. A tested neural network based MRAC design methodology that utilizes the adaptability of neural networks to compensate for the time varying dynamic properties of adaptronic structures is then described in detail.
