A self-tuning control scheme is proposed for tension regulation in a web transport system. A computationally efficient self-tuning method is first described. The frequency domain model of the plant is then described. Simulations of the on-line tuning are presented. The paper closes with a discussion of cognizant real-time implementation issues.
