he extended pole placement (EPP) method extends the well-known pole placement method to digital servo-control with known control inputs. A servo-control system designed using the EPP method achieves an accurate command response through the use of a noncausal reference model and an accurate approximation of nonminimum-phase zeros. The phase error of the command response between the desired output and the actual output may be made arbitrarily small, while its gain extends uniformly to a selectable bandwidth. A selectable feedforward bandwidth is important in controlling flexible structures where unmodeled resonances might be excited by rough feedforward inputs. Experimental results on a machine tool slide show that a controller designed by the EPP method yields better servo performance for cornering and contour tracking tasks than an E-filter-enhanced zero phase error tracking controller.
