Robust control

Robust control
Robust control is a branch of control theory that explicitly deals with uncertainty in its approach to controller
design. Robust control methods are designed to function properly so long as uncertain parameters or disturbances are
within some (typically compact) set. Robust methods aim to achieve robust performance and/or stability in the
presence of bounded modeling errors.
The early methods of Bode and others were fairly robust; the state-space methods invented in the 1960s and 1970s
were sometimes found to lack robustness,
prompting research to improve them. This was the start of the theory of
Robust Control, which took shape in the 1980s and 1990s and is still active today.
In contrast with an adaptive control policy, a robust control policy is static; rather than adapting to measurements of
variations, the controller is designed to work assuming that certain variables will be unknown but, for example,
When is a control method said to be robust?
Informally, a controller designed for a particular set of parameters is said to be robust if it would also work well
under a different set of assumptions. High-gain feedback is a simple example of a robust control method; with
sufficiently high gain, the effect of any parameter variations will be negligible. High-gain feedback is the principle
that allows simplified models of operational amplifiers and emitter-degenerated bipolar transistors to be used in a
variety of different settings. This idea was already well understood by Bode and Black in 1927.
The modern theory of robust control
The theory of robust control began in the late 1970s and early 1980s and soon developed a number of techniques for
dealing with bounded system uncertainty.
Probably the most important example of a robust control technique is H-infinity loop-shaping, which was developed
by Duncan McFarlane and Keith Glover of Cambridge University; this method minimizes the sensitivity of a system
over its frequency spectrum, and this guarantees that the system will not greatly deviate from expected trajectories
when disturbances enter the system.
An emerging area of robust control from application point of view is Sliding Mode Control (SMC) which is a
variation of variable structure control (VSS). Robustness property of SMC towards matched uncertainty as well as
the simplicity in design attracted a variety of application.
Another example is loop transfer recovery (LQG/LTR),
which was developed to overcome the robustness
problems of LQG control.
Other robust techniques includes Quantitative Feedback Theory (QFT), Gain scheduling, Back stepping, Feedback
linearisation etc.
