Abstract
An independent design method for robust partially decentralized controllers is developed. In the proposed design method, the partially decentralized c ontrol system is first expanded to the nonsquare decentralized structure. U sing the Internal Model Control parametrization, the independent design pro cedure for robust nonsquare decentralized controllers can then be applied d irectly to the expanded system. Two examples, including a nonlinear stirred mixing tank, are used to illustrate the developed design method and a comp arison to a decentralized controller is made. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd .
