In this paper, we present a robust controller design method that can not only deal with a constant time delay plant but a1so the uncertain time delay one. For a constant time delay plant, the proposed DTC can independently adjust the set point response and the disturbance rejection response without any stability constraint. And in the uncertain time delay case, one can process the control design step with uncertainty norm bound. To verify real effectiveness, theoretical analysis and simulation results are given.

    ABSTRACT: Presents a simple criterion for tuning a dead time compensator for plants with an integrator and long dead time. The criterion is based on the definition of a closed-loop performance and considers that the model of the process is not precisely known. Using an estimation of the dead time and velocity gain of the plant, the proposed control law has only one tuning parameter that determines the closed-loop performance and robustness. By tuning this parameter it is possible to attain some robust performance specifications. In order to compare the proposed criterion with previous algorithms proposed in the literature, a comparative analysis of robustness is presented. Some simulation examples demonstrate the good properties of the proposed compensator

    ABSTRACT: A new Smith predictor for control of a process with an integrator and long dead-time is proposed in this note. The controller decouples the setpoint response from the load response. This simplifies both design and tuning. Simulation results obtained by controlling a typical process show that the new controller has superior performance compared to previous algorithms

    ABSTRACT: A dead-time compensator for controlling higher-order processes with integral action and long dead-time is proposed. Tuning formulas are derived. If the velocity gain and the dead-time are estimated experimentally, only one parameter, the time constant defining the speed of the closed-loop setpoint response, has to be tuned manually. The same setpoint response is obtained as in the modified Smith predictor, while the load disturbance rejection is considerably faster
