I am trying to find out the differences between the model-based control approach and the data-driven one.
Surely the main difference is the latter's independence from the information of the mathematical model of the plant in the control design. For the former from experimental data a model for the plant is obtained with some degree of accuracy.

If for data-driven techniques, I have found out many examples: PID, IFT, ILC, etc., I have not found out anything for the model-based control. Can you give me some examples of techniques (maybe the most common) that can be defined as model-based control approaches?

  • $\begingroup$ I don't want the explanation of the theory behind them, but only some example of known techniques $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I would argue that ILC is model based and PID I also wouldn't classify as a data-driven control method. I would even argue that the majority is model-based, such as LQR, MPC, H∞ and probably most of nonlinear control. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @fibonatic Are you sure? I have read many papers that refers to ILC as data driven and PID as the first example of data driven technique! $\endgroup$
