This paper considers a novel model based switching control scheme. The philosophy of the approach is to design a conventional linear or nonlinear feedback control scheme for a nominal plant model and to force the true system states to that of the nominal model by introducing a switching term. In the demonstrated example, a twin rotor system is considered. Feedback controller for the nominal system is designed using the backstepping method and the results show that the proposed technique is successful.
