Abstract

The theory of self-tuning regulators and related topics in linear stochastic control theory have been examined. A unifying treatment of the theory of self-tuning regulators has been presented, and an attempt made to clarify the confusion surrounding certain aspects of these regulators. The notation is that of Box and Jenkins (1970).

Self-tuning control of a steam jacketed stirred tank was successfully implemented. The experimental program was designed to illustrate points from the theory that have caused confusion in previous industrial and pilot plant implementations.
