Abstract : Conceptually and computationally simple methods for the design of high-performance tracking systems are described. These methods ae equally applicable to the design of both analogue and digital controllers, and are based upon the exploitation of a solitary system-theoretic result from the singular perturbation analysis of transfer function matrices. Illustrative examples involving the design of tracking systems incorporating both high-gain analogue controllers and fast-sampling digital controllers are presented. (Author)
