In this paper, we introduce piecewise affine variable-gain controllers as a means to improve performance compared to linear controllers. Variable-gain controllers can improve upon the tradeoff between low-frequency tracking and sensitivity to high-frequency disturbances. However, performance-based tuning of the variable-gain controllers, is far from trivial… CONTINUE READING
