Iterative learning control (ILC) is a simple and effective technique of tracking control aiming at improving system tracking performance from trial to trial in a repetitive mode. In this paper, we propose a new ILC called switching gain PD-PD (SPD-PD)-type ILC for trajectory tracking control of time-varying nonlinear systems with uncertainty and disturbance. In the developed control scheme, a PD feedback control with switching gains in the iteration domain and a PD-type ILC based on the previous iteration combine together into one updating law. The proposed SPD-PD ILC takes the advantages of feedback control and classical ILC and can also be viewed as online-offline ILC. It is theoretically proven that the boundednesses of the state error and the final tracking error are guaranteed in the presence of uncertainty, disturbance, and initialization error of the nonlinear systems. The convergence rate is adjustable by the adoption of the switching gains in the iteration domain. Simulation experiments are conducted for trajectory tracking control of a nonlinear system and a robotic system. The results show that fast convergence and small tracking error bounds can be observed by using the SPD-PD-type ILC.
