This paper focuses on the application of fractional backstepping control scheme for nonlinear fractional partial differential equation (FPDE). Two types of fractional derivatives are considered in this paper, Caputo and the Grünwald-Letnikov fractional derivatives. Therefore, obtaining highly accurate approximations for this derivative is of a great importance. Here, the discretized approach for the space variable is used to transform the FPDE into a system of fractional differential equations. The convergence of the closed loop system is guaranteed in the sense of Mittag-Leffler stability. An illustrative example is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
