This paper proposes an H ∞ output tracking control for a class of time-delay systems with uncertainties based on Takagi–Sugeno simple-structure cerebellar model articulation controller and virtual desired variables. The advantages of the proposed methodology are threefold: i) allow adaptive tuning for linear matrix inequality-based control; ii) guarantee H ∞ control performance of the overall output tracking system; and iii) relax the condition of equilibrium point knowledge. We implement the controller on a stirred tank reactor system as an example. The validity of the proposed controller is verified by satisfactory numerical results.
