This paper deals with self-adaptive automatic control systems based on comparison of a process quality indicator with a stored ideal process model. Since all ideal process reference values are available simultaneously, the search phase needed in the conventional self-adaptive control system is eliminated instead, an almost instantaneous selection of an optimal mode of operation is achieved. The problem of identification, i.e., the maintenance of correspondence between the model and the process, remains. The control system shown in the document is called combined, because it responds not only to the output variable and the control actions, but also to various disturbances.
