This paper considers the problem of tracking a periodic signal for a plant with an input dead zone in the actuator. The nonlinearity greatly degrades control performance. To solve this problem, we incorporate an equivalent-input-disturbance (EID) compensator into a repetitive control system (RCS), resulting in a new system configuration. We combine the linear-matrixinequality technique with singular-value decomposition to analyze the stability of the system and to devise a design method. Unlike other methods, this one does not require any information about the dead zone. Simulation results demonstrate its effectiveness.
