ABSTRACT-The Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller structure is the most widely
used one in industrial applications. However, PID controller cannot stabilize any plant. In order to
overcome this problem, Yamada and Hagiwara proposed a design method for modified PID
controllers such that the modified PID controller makes the control system for unstable plants stable
and the admissible sets of P-parameter, I-parameter and D-parameter are independent from each
other. When modified PID control systems are applied to real plants, the influence of disturbance in
the plant must be considered. In many cases, the disturbance in the plant is unknown. It is
comparatively easy to attenuate known disturbances, but it is difficult to attenuate unknown
disturbances. From a practical viewpoint, it is desirable to design a modified PID control system to
attenuate unknown disturbances. Recently, a design method for modified PID control systems for to
attenuate unknown disturbances was proposed. However, no paper examines a design method for
modified PID control systems for multiple-inputlmultiple-output plants to attenuate unknown
disturbances. In this paper, we propose a design method for modified PID control systems for
muItiple-inputimultiple-output plants to attenuate unknown disturbances.

1. INTRODUCTION

The Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller structure is the most widely used one in
industrial applications. Its structural simplicity and sufficient ability of solving many practical control
problems have contributed to this wide acceptance [1-3].
Several papers on tuning methods for PID parameters have been published [4-14], but these methods
do not guarantee the stability of a control system. Using these methods in [4-14], the PID control system is
not necessarily stable. If the admissible sets of PID parameters that would guarantee the stability of a
control system can be determined, we can easily design stabilizing PID controllers to meet control
specifications.
The problem to obtain the admissible sets of PID parameters to guarantee the stability of the control
system is known as a parameterization problem [3,15,16]. If there exists a stabilizing PID controller, the
parameterization of all stabilizing PID controller is considered in [3,15,16]. However, these methods in
[3,15,16] remain a difficulty. The admissible sets of P-parameter, I-parameter and D-parameter in [3,15,16]
are related each other. That is, if the P-parameter changes, then the admissible sets of I-parameter and D­
parameter also change. From a practical point of view, it is desirable that the admissible sets ofP-parameter,
I-parameter and D-parameter are independent from each other. Yamada and Moki initially approached this
problem and proposed a design method for modified PI controllers for any minimum phase system such
that the admissible sets of P-parameter and I-parameter are independent from each other [17]. Yamada
expanded the results in [17] and proposed a design method for modified PID controllers for minimum
phase plants [18]. In addition, Yamada and Hagiwara gave a design method for modified PID controllers
for unstable plants [19]. In this way, the modified PID controller that can stabilize the control system has
been established. However, the modified PID controller in [17-19] remains two difficulties. One is that the
modified PID control system in [17-19] cannot specify the input-output characteristic and the disturbance
attenuation characteristic separately. The other is that the modified PID control system in [17-19] cannot
attenuate unknown disturbances. From a practical viewpoint, it is desirable to specify the input-output
characteristic and the disturbance attenuation characteristic separately and to attenuate unknown
