This paper proposes an uncertainty and disturbance estimator (UDE)-based controller for nonlinear systems with mismatched uncertainties and disturbances, integrating the UDE-based control and the conventional backstepping scheme. The adoption of the backstepping scheme helps to relax the structural constraint of the UDE-based control. Moreover, the reference model design in the UDE-based control offers a solution to address the “complexity explosion” problem of the backstepping approach. Furthermore, the strict-feedback form condition in the conventional backstepping approach is also relaxed by using the UDE-based control to estimate and compensate “disturbance-like” terms including nonstrict-feedback terms and intermediate system errors. The uniformly ultimate boundedness of the closed-loop system is analyzed. Both numerical and experimental studies are provided.
