In this paper, a new robust stability criterion for linear systems is proposed by combining the passivity and small gain theorems in different frequency bands. A controller synthesis method based on the new criterion is also developed. The controller can achieve both good performance and robustness in the same frequency band, if the uncertainty in that frequency band is passive or near passive. For processes with near passive lumped uncertainties with large gain in the frequency region in which good performance is required, the proposed controller can have better performance than that of H∞ control for the same robustness specification.
