This paper presents a gain scheduled controller design for MIMO and SISO systems in frequency domain. The proposed method is based on the M-Δ structure of closed loop MIMO (SISO) systems and the small gain theory is exploited to obtain the stability condition. Example of hydro generator model illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed output feedback gain scheduled controller design method.
