In this paper, we study robust stability and stabilizability of sampled-data control systems composed of a continuous-time plant and a discrete-time compensator together with sample/hold devices, using the frequency domain method. Our study is not confined only to the case of standard (i.e., single-rate) sampled-data controllers but also extended to the case of multirate sampled-data controllers. Specifically, we compare, by numerical examples, the tolerable amounts of the uncertainty of a given continuous-time plant for which the robust stabilization can be attained in the three cases: the cases of a continuous-time controller, a single-rate sampled-data controller, and a multirate sampled-data controller. The result will be useful for estimating the deterioration caused by use of sampled-data controllers in place of continuous ones, or evaluating the advantages of the multirate sampled-data scheme over the standard one.
