Abstract

For discrete-time scalar systems, we propose an approach for designing feedback controllers of fixed order to minimize an upper bound on the peak magnitude of the tracking error to a given command input. The work makes use of linear programming to design over a class of closed-loop systems recently proposed for the rejection of non-zero initial conditions and bounded disturbances. We incorporate performance robustness in the form of a guaranteed upper bound on the peak magnitude of the tracking error under plant coprime factor uncertainty. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
