This brief addresses the problem of designing adaptive neural network tracking control for a class of strict-feedback systems with unknown time-varying disturbances of known periods which nonlinearly appear in unknown functions. Multilayer neural network (MNN) and Fourier series expansion (FSE) are combined into a novel approximator to model each uncertainty in systems. Dynamic surface control (DSC) approach and integral-type Lyapunov function (ILF) technique are combined to design the control algorithm. The ultimate uniform boundedness of all closed-loop signals is guaranteed. The tracking error is proved to converge to a small residual set around the origin. Two simulation examples are provided to illustrate the feasibility of control scheme proposed in this brief.
