The authors introduce the concept of iterative adaptive control and formulate an iterative adaptive control algorithm. The controller iterations must satisfy certain convergence and continuity assumptions for the closed-loop system stability, but only one step controller iteration is required for each new parameter update. This results in a considerable reduction in real-time computational load. The algorithm is presented in a general form and then applied to an adaptive LQ (linear quadratic) regulator.
