This paper deals with the improved design of stable model reference adaptive systems, by introducing a nonlinear adaptation gain. Uniform asymptotic stability of the system is demonstrated for both state and output feedback cases. A simulation example shows the effectiveness of the proposed approach when large parameter variations and disturbances are active. It is also being applied to control a real printing system.
