Abstract : Self-Organizing control is a form of adaptive control in which the controller uses an incremental model of the plant and identifies parameters in this model by means of calculations based upon recent-term plant excitation and response histories. The report presents the theoretical derivation of refinements in self-organizing control techniques yielding substantial reduction of sampling rates of self-organizing controllers and identification of magnitudes as well as polarities of plant gain parameters. Additionally, this report describes the implementation of self-organizing controller logic in the form of breadboard digital hardware. (Modified author abstract)
