Consideration was given to the control of linear plants under external perturbations and measurement of the quantized plant output. The “consecutive compensator” method was used to design the controller. The obtained algorithm tracks the quantized plant output with respect to the reference signal with precision depending on the quantization step. The simulations illustrate the efficiency of the proposed scheme.
