Abstract

Iterative learning control (ILC) is an efficient way of improving the tracking performance of repetitive systems. While ILC can offer significant improvement to the transient response of complex dynamical systems, the fundamental assumption of iteration invariance of the process limits potential applications. Utilizing abstract Banach spaces as our problem setting, we develop a general approach that is applicable to the various frameworks encountered in ILC. Our main result is that robust invariant update laws lead to stable behavior in ILC systems, where iteration-varying systems converge to bounded neighborhoods of their nominal counterparts when uncertainties are bounded. Furthermore, if the uncertainties are convergent along the iteration axis, convergence to the nominal case can be guaranteed.
