In this work, a new parallel feedforward compensator for the feedback loop of a linear nonminimum-phase system is introduced. Then, analytical statistical arguments between the existing developed methods and the innovated method are brought. The compelling arguments suggest the parallel feedforward compensation with derivative (PFCD) method is a strong method even though at its first survey it seems to be optimistic and not pragmatic. While most of the existing methods offer an optimal integral of squared errors (ISE) for the closed-loop response of the nominal plant, the PFCD offers a finite ISE; in reality, typically, the nominal plant is not of main concern in the controller design and the performance in the presence of mismatch model, noise, and disturbance has priority. In this work, there are several arguments brought to bold the importance of the innovated PFCD design. Also, there is a closed-loop design example to show the PFCD effectiveness in action.
