This report represents an analysis of the determination of the information content in a selected pair of system data points from the input/output of the plant. The given system contains a random variation condition which leads to the introduction of an adaptive control loop. A procedure for adaptive control is proposed, based upon the information content in the selected pair, for implementation in a microcomputer-based system. The determination of the selected pair as well as the adaptive control laws are based upon extensive computer simulation of the system. This computer-design technique aids in the development of "switching" conditions for the parameters of the adaptive controller such as to maintain system output within a given set of transient specifications.
