  • In this paper, based on the fast finite-time stability theorem, an adaptive fuzzy control problem is considered for a class of nonlinear systems in pure-feedback form with unknown disturbance. In the controller design process, the mean value theorem is applied to address the nonaffine structure of the pure-feedback plant, the universal approximation capability of the fuzzy logic system is utilized to compensate the unknown uncertainties, and the adaptive backstepping technique is used to design …Read more
