Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of augmenting a linear observer with an adaptive element. The design of the adaptive element employs two nonlinearly parameterized neural networks, the input and output layer weights of which are adapted on line. The goal is to improve the performance of the linear observer when applied to a nonlinear system. The networks teaching signal is generated using a second linear observer of the nominal system's error dynamics. Boundedness of signals is shown through Lyapunov's direct method. The approach is robust to unmodeled dynamics and disturbances. Simulations illustrate the theoretical results.
