Paper presents a gain scheduled controller design for SISO systems applied on DC engine. This frequency domain method is based on the  structure of closed loop systems and the small gain theory is exploited to obtain the stability condition. The gain scheduling control is compared with classic robust control on DC engine with variable load.
