This study explains about the SIMO plant statistics of observer-based control to a rotational electro-mechanical system. A robust linear quadratic regulator controller is proposed here, in this study, to observe all the states after recognizing the linear model. The unknown states were determined by the method and for the tuning of the weighted matrices various methods were applied. This full state feedback controller was able to produce faster and smoother output stabilization, which leads to better robustness. The model is highly nonlinear, and model identification is done by MATLAB simulation procedure.
