This paper (first presented as a plenary lecture at the 5th IFAC Symposium on Robust Control Design, Toulouse, July 2006) demonstrates the practical importance of robust control theory by describing its application to two non-trivial practical control problems. Part 1 considers helicopter control and Part 2 addresses saturation problems in high-performance head-positioning servo systems in high-density hard-disk drives. In Part 1, we present the design and flight test of a new batch of H… CONTINUE READING
