Abstract

Suppressing the influence of external disturbances on a process is the most common objective of a controller in a chemical plant. A control system that can keep the controlled variables at or near their set point and the manipulated variables lower than their prespecified maximum bounds in the face of load disturbances is wanted. A method is presented to design controllers with disturbance rejection specifications and limits over the control energy. This methodology is based on a special strategy to shape the structured singular value of a closed-loop transfer function matrix.
