A new design procedure for a robust 𝐻 2 and 𝐻 control of continuous-time singularly perturbed systems via dynamic output feedback is presented. By formulating all objectives in terms of a common Lyapunov function, the controller will be designed through solving a set of inequalities. Therefore, a dynamic output feedback controller is developed such that 𝐻 and 𝐻 2 performance of the resulting closed-loop system is less than or equal to some prescribed value. Also, 𝐻 and 𝐻 2 performance for a given upperbound of singular perturbation parameter 𝜀 ( 0 , 𝜀 ] are guaranteed. It is shown that the 𝜀 -dependent controller is well defined for any 𝜀 ( 0 , 𝜀 ] and can be reduced to an 𝜀 -independent one so long as 𝜀 is sufficiently small. Finally, numerical simulations are provided to validate the proposed controller. Numerical simulations coincide with the theoretical analysis.
