This paper addresses analysis and synthesis of robust stability and robust performance repetitive control systems. The repetitive control design problem is formulated as a standard feedback form in the linear fractional transformation form such that the standard numerical optimization software can be used to obtain the solution. The main idea of the robust repetitive control system design lies in introducing a fictitious complex uncertainty to replace the long delay chain in the internal model of the repetitive control system. This drastically reduces the order of the augmented plant for controller synthesis and hence generates a low order compensator, which in conjunction with the pure delay renders a repetitive controller that can be implemented efficiently in real time. The proposed approach can be applied to both the continuous and discrete-time domain repetitive control design for unstable open-loop plant. Sufficient conditions for the robust stability and robust performance repetitive control systems are presented. Conservatism analysis shows that the sufficient conditions become necessary when the pure delay approaches infinity. The robust repetitive control is applied to an electrohydraulic actuator for tracking periodic trajectories. Experimental results are presented to illustrate the design procedure and control system performance.
