In this chapter, fundamental definitions and terminology are given to the reader regarding the closed-loop control system. The analysis of the control loop takes place in the frequency domain and, therefore all necessary transfer functions of the control loop are presented in Sect. 2.2. The important aspect of internal stability of a control loop is presented in Sect. 2.3, whereas in Sect. 2.4 the property of robustness in a control loop is analyzed. In Sect. 2.5, a clear definition of the type of the control loop is given, since in Part II, the proposed theory is dedicated to the design of type-I, type-II, and type-III, ... type-p control loops. Last but not least, in Sect. 2.6, the definitions of sensitivity and complementary sensitivity functions are presented so that the tradeoff feature in terms of controller performance that these two functions introduce is made clear to the reader. Finally, in Sect. 2.7, the principle of the Magnitude Optimum criterion is presented and certain optimization conditions are proved that comprise the basic tool for all control laws’ proof throughout this book. These optimization conditions serve to maintain the magnitude of the closed-loop frequency response equal to the unity in the widest possible frequency range as the Magnitude Optimum criterion implies. In the same section, the Magnitude Optimum criterion is proved to be considered as a practical aspect of the \(H_\infty \) design control principle.
