A parameter learning method is introduced. It is then used to
broaden the region of operabilityof the adaptive control system of a
space structure. The learning system guides the selection of control
parameters in a process leadingto optimal system performance; the
method is a form of leaming by observation and discovery. It is
applicableto any systemwhereperformancedepends on a number of
adjustable parameters. A mathematicalmodel is not necessary as the
learning system can be used whenever the performance can be
measured via simulationorexperiment.
1. Introduction
Large flexible space structures pose unique control problems
because of the complexity of their dynamic behavior, the limited
knowledgeof themodel,thetime-varyingelementsandtheuncertainty
of the environment in the types of disturbances that will be
