A new method is proposed with which to design a class of robust fractional order controllers - which we denote as FPI controllers since they can be regarded as a generalization of standard PI controllers - for the effective control of water distribution in irrigation main canal pools characterized by time-varying dynamical parameters. The closed loop behavior of the nominal plant is defined by using frequency specifications, which are combined with an optimization procedure that minimizes the… CONTINUE READING
