In this paper, a model-based control algorithm is developed for a solenoid-valve system. Solenoids and butterfly valves have uncertainties in multiple parameters in the model, which make the system difficult to adjust to the environment. These are further complicated by combining the solenoid and butterfly dynamic models. The control objective of a solenoid-valve system is to position the angle of the butterfly valve through the electric-driven actuator in spite of the complexity presented by uncertainties. The novelty of the controller design is that the current source of the solenoid valve from the model of the electromagnetic force is substituted for the control input in order to reach the set-point of the butterfly disk based on the error signals, overcoming the uncertainties represented by lumped parameters groups, and a stable controller is designed via the Lyapunov-based approach for the stability of the system and obtaining the control objective. The parameter groups are updated by adaptation laws using a projection algorithm. Numerical simulation is shown to demonstrate good performance of the proposed approach.
