Robust PID Decentralized Controller Design Using LMI

Danica Rosinová, Vojtech Veselý


The new LMI based method for robust stability analysis for linear uncertain system with PID controller is proposed. The general constrained structure of controller matrix is considered appropriate for both output feedback and decentralized control and the respective guaranteed cost control design scheme is presented. The sufficient robust stability condition is developed for extended quadratic performance index including first derivative of the state vector to damp oscillations. The obtained stability condition is formulated for parameter-dependent Lyapunov function.
