The frequency domain design methodology developed in Jayasuriya and Franchek (1988) for the synthesis of controllers that maximize the allowable size of an unknown-but-bounded disturbance in the presence of several time domain constraints is revisited. It is shown that (i) the basic ingredients of the methodology stays essentially the same for systems with nonminimum phase zeros and/or unstable poles, and (ii) two modifications can facilitate the loop shaping step. In particular, a nonminimum phase problem may be converted to one of frequency shaping a minimum phase loop; and a prestabilization scheme may be used for unstable systems. Two examples illustrate the proposed modifications with one compared to results obtained by the so called Set-Theoretic (ST) approach.
