Paper Abstract

An adaptive controller has been designed to control the pressure and force of a testing process of the glass viscoelastic property. The testing process appears to be nonlinear with the characteristic parameters varying drastically from test to test due to the difference of the composition of the testing glass samples and the variation of testing conditions. The proposed control scheme includes a simplified nonlinear model with unknown parameters, an on-line parameter estimator and an adaptive control algorithm combining feedforward prediction and PI (proportional plus integral) controller. Experimental results prove that the designed adaptive controller is adequate to control the glass testing process over a very wide range of testing conditions.
