An approach for robust control of periodically time-varying systems is proposed. The approach combines the point-mapping formulation and a parameterization of the control vector to formulate an equivalent time-invariant discrete-time representation of the system. The discrete-time representation of the dynamic system allows for the application of known sampled-data control design methodologies. A perturbed, discrete-time dynamic model is formulated and plant parametric uncertainty are obtained using a truncated point-mapping algorithm. The error bounds due to point-mapping approximation are computed and a robustness analysis problem of the system due to parametric uncertainties is formulated using structured singular value theory. The proposed approach is illustrated by two design examples. Simulation studies show good performance robustness of the control system to parameter perturbations and system nonlinearities.
