Abstract

Zero phase error tracking (ZPET) control has gained popularity as a simple yet effective feedforward control method for tracking time varying desired trajectories by the plant output of a continuous time transfer function of relative order greater than or equal to two. In this paper, we will note that the sampling zeros of the zero-order hold equivalent of chain of integrators, 1/sn, are configured for natural realization of zero phase error tracking. This property is exploited to realize a simplified realization of zero phase error tracking control for chain of integrators. The property can also be utilized for general transfer functions when the sampling period for digital control is small. The effectiveness of the proposed approach for general transfer functions is demonstrated by simulations.
