Three linear discrete-time model-based controller design techniques are compared: pole placement, linear quadratic Gaussian (LQG) and H∞ control. It is shown that design choices can be made for all three controllers by considering the effect on the sensitivity functions of the closed-loop system. Also all three controllers can be implemented using an identical controller structure. A comparative study of the application of the techniques to an electromechanical servosystem is made. The controllers are designed from a discrete-time plant model estimated from experimental data, and a polynomial-based solution method is used in each case. It is concluded that acceptable performance can be achieved using any of the controllers if informed design choices are made.
