Abstract

This paper presents a method for the design of PID-type controllers, including those augmented by a filter on the D element, satisfying a required gain margin and an upper bound on the (complementary) sensitivity for a finite set of plants. Important properties of the method are: (i) it can be applied to plants of any order including non-minimum phase plants, plants with delay, plants characterized by quasi-polynomials, unstable plants and plants described by measured data, (ii) the sensors associated with the PI terms and the D term can be different (i.e., they can have different transfer function models), (iii) the algorithm relies on explicit equations that can be solved efficiently, (iv) the algorithm can be used in near real-time to determine a controller for on-line modification of a plant accounting for its uncertainty and closed-loop specifications, (v) a single plot can be generated that graphically highlights tradeoffs among the gain margin, (complementary) sensitivity bound, low-frequency sensitivity and high-frequency sensor noise amplification, and (vi) the optimal controller for a practical definition of optimality can readily be identified.
