Active Disturbance Rejection Based Robust Trajectory Tracking Controller Design in State Space
This paper proposes a new active disturbance rejection (ADR) based robust trajectory tracking controller design method in state space. It can compensate not only matched but also mismatched disturbances. Robust state and control input references are generated in terms of a fictitious design variable, namely differentially flat output, and the estimations of disturbances by using differential flatness (DF) and disturbance observer (DOb). Two different robust controller design techniques are proposed by using Brunovsky canonical form and polynomial matrix form approaches. The robust position control problem of a two mass-spring-damper system is studied to verify the proposed ADR controllers.
