This paper presents a method in which the performance weights W1(s) and W2(s) of the robust performance problem and/or the H optimization problem can be chosen to enforce hard time domain constraints. The class of systems addressed are single-input-single-output (SISO) regulating systems required to maintain the output within a prespecified time domain tolerance despite i) plant uncertainty, ii) an external step disturbance, and iii) actuator limitations (i.e., output saturation and bandwidth). The performance weights are constructed from the feedback configuration and facilitate disturbance maximization.
