Stability analysis of continuous-time, indirect, pole placement, adaptive control with input rate constraint is presented in this paper. It is shown that with an appropriate controller design, the closed-loop system is robustly stable for a class of stable minimum-phase plants in the sense that all the signals in the loop remain bounded in the presence of modelling uncertainties and bounded disturbances. It is also shown that if the plant is free from modelling uncertainties and disturbances, and if the control input rate remains unsaturated for a finite period of time, then the closed-loop system will asymptotically be characterized by the desired closed-loop poles within this time period.
