I got a plant $G(s)=\left(0.13s+1\right)/s^2$ to design a compensator which provides below demands:

  • Settling time : max 2s
  • Overshoot : max %35
  • Gain margin : min 10 dB
  • Phase margin : min 30 deg
  • Controller effort (r to u) : max 0.9
  • Bandwith : min 10 rad/s

The best architecture so far was the one below but I couldn't reach the demands.

enter image description here

assigning $C1=0.03\cdot\left(\left(s+80\right)\left(s+10\right)\right)/\left(\left(s+0.12\right)\left(s+1\right)\right)$, $C2=17.5\text{m}$ and $H=1$ results as below:

enter image description here

Can anyone explain or guide a design approach on how to handle $\left(s+a\right)/s^2$ type plants when designing compensators or mention some tips/shortcuts for architecture selection? How do we select the order of the controller?

  • $\begingroup$ Is this a homework question? Or like a job? Could you show what your compensator could accomplish in a plot? What it does manage, and also doesn‘t manage? What don‘t you understand when it comes to design and choosing an order? $\endgroup$ – morbo Oct 23 '19 at 8:07
  • $\begingroup$ it is a job like question and I editted the question to show how my compensator affects. As to order, I know that we should select lower order compensator as much as possible and there is no exact prescription for the type of compensator selection. what I want to learn is that is there a relation or at least an approach between plant order with compensator order when we start to design a compensator. for example my plant is second order and so should I start with 2th order compensator (like lead-lag) in order to save time by skipping working on 1th order compensators. $\endgroup$ – lsn Oct 23 '19 at 9:09
  • $\begingroup$ Is there a reason why you choose that specific architecture, instead of for example a single feedback loop? $\endgroup$ – fibonatic Oct 23 '19 at 9:20
  • $\begingroup$ this architecture performed better than the others. I tried the others also. $\endgroup$ – lsn Oct 23 '19 at 9:40
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe this will help, $-\frac{8.20546 \left(1. s^2-3.84499 s+118.343\right)}{s}$ $\endgroup$ – morbo Oct 23 '19 at 21:50
