In this study, we develop an adaptive neural network based boundary control method for a flexible marine riser system with unknown nonlinear disturbances and output constraints to suppress vibrations. We begin with describing the dynamic behavior of the riser system using a distributed parameter system with partial differential equations. To compensate for the effect of nonlinear disturbances, we construct a neural network based boundary controller using a radial basis neural network to reduce vibrations. Under the proposed boundary controller, the state of the riser is guaranteed to be uniformly bounded based on the Lyapunov method. The proposed methodology provides a way to integrate neural networks into boundary control for other flexible robotic manipulator systems. Finally, numerical simulations are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control method.
