Abstract : A new class of control systems termed predictive adaptive controls is developed and the performance characteristics are investigated analytically and experimentally. Control of dynamic processes is subdivided into intervals of a specified length T and prediction is used to obtain estimates of future values of system error. Two applications of predictive adaptive control are investigated on an analog computer. The results of three basic experiments which evaluate the steady-state adaptability, transient response, and statistical signal response of the two systems are reported.
