This treatise presents an implementation of a General Self-Tuning Observer Controller (GSTOC) for adaptive velocity control using a TMS320C25 Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The GSTOC is a structure based on modern control state-space theories, such as Kalman filters used as steady state or time-varying optimal state estimators, full state feedback using pole placement or optimal control theory and parameter estimation techniques.
