Abstract: This manuscript describes a new procedure to design a controller for unstable high order interval systems using model order reduction and Nevalinna-pick theory. In this process, First, a high-order unstable interval system is converted into a reduced-order model in which improved Routh table truncation and time-moment matching techniques are applied. The denominator and numerator of reduced- order model are evaluated by improved Routh table truncation and time-moment matching technique, respectively. Next, employing the Kharitonov theorem and Nevalinna-pick theory, controller is designed for a reduced-order model in a certain range of uncertainty. To explain the procedure, the proposed method is applied to the fourth-order unstable interval system. Results prove the effectiveness of the method.

Keywords: controller design; interval system; Kharitonov theorem; model order reduction; Nevallina-pick theory; robust stabilisability; routh table truncation; Padé approximation.
