This paper presents a new design of robust optimal controller for multivariable system. The row characteristic functions of a linear multivariable system and dynamic decoupling of its equivalent system, were applied to change the transfer function matrix of a closed-loop system into a normal function matrix, so that robust H optimal stability is guaranteed. Furthermore, for the decoupled equivalent control system the l&infin; optimization approach is used to have the closed-loop system embody optimal time domain indexes. A successful application on a heater control system verified the excellence of the new control scheme.
