Abstract

In this chapter the engineering tool for feedback design of single-input single-output and multi-input single-output systems, known as QFT, is introduced. The important features of this approach are: (i) it is robust to the exact amount of plant uncertainty; (ii) it tailors the closed loop precisely to the specifications which are given at each frequency; and (iii) the technique is graphically based, therefore allowing for insight into tradeoffs amongst design parameters such as complexity, scheduling, amount of uncertainty, sampling time, margins and bandwidth. As a result, the method allows the designer to come up with low bandwidth designs.
