Simple linear controllers are normally to be preferred to complex linear controllers for linear time-invariant plants. There are fewer things to go wrong in the hardware or bugs to fix in the software, they are easier to understand, and the computational requirements (and associated hardware requirements) are less. On the other hand, many plants are of high order, Therefore, there is a desire to have methods available for the design of controllers which have order significantly less than the order of the plant they are controlling.
