Keywords: Adaptive control, blow-up problems, variable forgetting factor

Abstract: This paper addresses the blow-up problem associated with the parameter estimation part of an adaptive controller. A partial solution to the problem has been devised by the introduction of a variable forgetting factor. However, this does not eliminate the blow-up possibility. This is shown by simulation experiments on two different models.
