About this title


The second edition of this monograph provides a systematic treatment of the design of hard disk drive servo systems updated to reflect recent improvements in spindle speed and bit density and other changes in this fast-moving field. In particular, it focuses on the applications of some newly developed results in control theory, i.e. robust and perfect tracking control and composite non-linear feedback control which are suitable for track following and seeking respectively. Emphasis is placed on hard disk drive servo systems with single- or dual-stage actuation using a voice-coil-motor actuator enhanced in the latter case by the addition of a micro-actuator providing faster responses and therefore higher bandwidth in track following. Modeling and compensation of nonlinearities and friction in microdrives, disturbance rejection and resonance compensation are also addressed. The Linear Systems and CNF MATLAB® toolkits used to develop many of the results can be downloaded from the book's website.


From the reviews:

I would consider this book to be must-read material for those directly involved in track-following or track-seeking controller design. The structural decomposition approach employed for linear systems provides an effective development framework for the authors' robust and perfect tracking (RPT) controller. The coverage of composite nonlinear feedback, which consistes of a linear controller in parallel with a nonlinear controller, is excellent, and the authors make a compelling case for its use in practice.... I found the mathematical treatment to be quite dense, and would recommend this book only to those who have had graduate courses in both linear and nonlinear control. Thankfully, all of the control approaches represented in the book have convenient Matlab implementations in the authors' downloadable toolbox.

As a whole, Hard Disk Drive Servo Systems is an invaluable addition to the practicing servo engineer's library.... Perhaps the most valuable contributions are the Matlab toolbox and the benchmark problem. With these tools, the authors' claims can be tested and their results expanded upon.
