A control system for uncertain plan without model is designed based on Newtons laws of motion and Kalman filter in the paper. The stability and unbiased estimate of the state observer are proven by Kalman filter theory via suitable setting system parameters. The controller structures and parameters are designed by feedback linearization based on Newtons laws of motion. All parameters in the system are only rated to the desired transient process time of system output without controlled plan model. If the desired transient process time of system output can’t be defined by control engineer, then the process time is set, where is the control period (or sample time period of DCS. Both the simulation example and engineering application example demonstrated the fine control quality and robust performance of the design method in the paper for uncertain systems without model.
