Contributed by the Dynamic Systems Division of ASME for publication in the JOURNAL OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS, MEASUREMENT, AND CONTROL. Manuscript received May 7, 2012; final manuscript received July 11, 2013; published online December 2, 2013. Assoc. Editor: John B. Ferris.

J. Dyn. Sys., Meas., Control 136(2), 021006 (Dec 02, 2013) (7 pages) Paper No: DS-12-1132; doi: 10.1115/1.4025797 History: Received May 07, 2012; Revised July 11, 2013

This paper deals with the problem of joint state and parameter estimation based on a set adaptive observer design. The problem is formulated and solved for an LPV (linear parameter-varying) system. The resolution methodology avoids the exponential complexity obstruction usually encountered in the set-membership parameter estimation. A simulation example is presented to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed approach.
