A method for the design of PID-type controllers, including those augmented by a filter on the D element, satisfying a required gain margin and an upper bound on the (complementary) sensitivity for a finite set of plants was discussed. The important properties of the method include that it can be applied to plants of any order including non-minimum phase plants, plants with delay, plants characterized by quasi-polynomials, unstable plants. A single plot can be generated that graphically highlights tradeoffs among the gain margin, (complementary) sensitivity bound, low-frequency sensitivity and high-frequency sensor noise amplification by using this method.
