A review is given of the new H Observations Weighted (HOW) optimal control law. The conditions under which the H controller has a PID structure are identified and some implications for PID controller design are discussed. The simple form of this H control law makes it easy to analyse and design. Examples are presented of the design procedure which involves the specification of the cost-function weighting transfer functions. The controller may be applied in applications where fast computational procedures are important.
