A robust synthesis algorithm is proposed for a class of uncertain linear parameter varying (LPV) systems. The uncertain system is described as an interconnection of a nominal (not-uncertain) LPV system and an uncertainty whose input/output behavior is described by an integral quadratic constraint (IQC). The proposed algorithm is a coordinate-wise ascent that is similar to the well-known DK iteration for μ-synthesis. In the first step, a nominal controller is designed for the LPV system without uncertainties. In the second step, the robustness of the designed controller is evaluated and a new scaled plant for the next synthesis step is created. The robust performance condition used in the analysis step is formulated as a dissipation inequality that incorporates the IQC and generalizes the Bounded Real Lemma like condition for performance of nominal LPV systems. Both steps can be formulated as a semidefinite program (SDP) and efficiently solved using available optimization software. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated on a simple numerical example.
