Robust Control Toolbox™ commands let you apply the powerful methods of
H∞ synthesis to
SISO and MIMO control design problems. You can use
hinfstruct to tune fixed-structure control
systems, which are control systems that have predefined architectures
and controller structures. Commands such as
perform traditional synthesis of full-order, centralized controllers.

Fixed-structure control systems are have predefined architectures and controller structures.
Traditional H∞ synthesis designs a full-order, centralized controller. Fixed-structure tuning lets you specify your control architecture and the structure and parameterization of the tunable elements of your system.
hinfstruct lets you use H∞ synthesis
to tune control systems that have predefined architectures and controller
hinfstruct, you express
your design requirements as constraints on the closed-loop gain.

hinfstruct returns a tuned version
of the control system model a parameter that indicates how well the
requirements are met.
To validate the
design, examine the performance of the tuned system.
If you have the Parallel Computing Toolbox™ software installed, you can speed up the tuning of fixed-structure control systems.
In this example, use H∞ synthesis to design a controller for a nominal plant model. Then, use μ synthesis to design a robust controller that accounts for uncertainty in the model.
This example shows how to use Robust Control Toolbox™ to design a robust controller (using D-K iteration) and to do robustness analysis on a process control problem.
For MIMO systems the transfer functions are matrices, and relevant measures of gain are determined by singular values, H∞, and H2 norms.
There are several ways of defining norms of a scalar signal, which have different physical interpretations and provide different measures of performance.
Many types of control objectives can be posed as a minimization of norms of closed-loop transfer functions.
