In this paper, we propose a new adaptive control system design using internal model principle (IMP) for a bounded polynomial parameters. In this method, we regard time varying parameters as variable disturbance and design an estimating law used the internal model of the disturbance so that the law is able to rejected the effectness of the disturbance. Our method has the features that the tracking error can converge to zero. Furthermore, we give a sufficient condition for the stability based on a small-gain theorem. The condition shows that our proposed method relax the stability condition more than the conventional methods based on a passivity theorem. Finally, we contain a numerical simulation to show an effect of our system.
