Abstract

In this paper, a novel approach to controller design for nonlinear multi-input/multi-output (MIMO) systems is presented based on the Contoured Robust Controller Bode (CRCBode) plot. CRCBode plots show level-sets of a robust metric and identify certain ``forbidden regions'' on the controller Bode magnitude and phase plots such that intersections of the controller frequency response with these forbidden regions indicate that a robust stability and performance criterion is violated. Nonlinear system dynamics are included as a structured uncertainty set consisting of linearizations about several operating points. To demonstrate this approach, we design a controller for a MIMO high-speed, low-tension magnetic tape drive memory system. A preliminary approximate inverse step is described, followed by several loop-shaping design iterations to eliminate all intersections with the forbidden regions on the CRCBode diagrams. Finally, the CRCBode compensator is compared to one generated using an automated H-infinity synthesis algorithm.
