Short distance position control (< 1mm) is an important issue in many precision position applications such as integrated circuit (IC) bonding machines. For these purposes, a novel linear switched reluctance motor (LSRM) is developed. The motor's control strategy is based on a 20 × 20 look-up table force linearization scheme for low-cost implementation. The system performance is satisfactory for long and medium distance travels, but the system's output should be further improved for short ones. In this paper, a plug-in robust compensator is proposed to improve the tracking response of the overall system. Simulation and experimental results are presented and compared to validate the proposed robust plug-in compensator.
