This paper was aimed at using an adaptive control to develop a backstepping method for a special class of nonlinear systems, which requires no information on the upper bound of parametric uncertainty or disturbance. In this research, a novel control approach, including a developed backstepping method and an adaptive controlling method, is introduced as an adaptive generalized backstepping method (AGBM). Compared to the standard backstepping method, AGBM is far more efficient because the

Another advantage of AGBM is that it can be applied to a special class of nonlinear systems with unmatched uncertainty as well as unknown upper bound disturbance. In this method, an adaptive controlling method is used to compensate uncertainty and parametric uncertainty besides stabilizing the controller against disturbances applied to the system. Finally, numerical simulation results demonstrate the advantages and feasibility of the presented algorithm, showing that the AGBM controller guarantees robustness and system stability in the presence of disturbance and uncertainty.
