In a typical disk drive servo system, two or more types of controllers are used for track seeking, track following, and track settling modes. This leads to the problem of mode switching among these controllers. We present in this paper a unified control scheme, the discrete-time composite nonlinear feedback control, which can perform all the above functions in hard disk drive (HDD) servo systems with actuator saturation. The proposed scheme is composed by combining a linear feedback law and a nonlinear feedback law. The linear feedback law is designed to yield a fast response, while the nonlinear feedback law is used to increase the damping ratio of the closed-loop system as the system output approaches the command input. In the face of actuator saturation, this control law not only increases the speed of closed-loop response, but also improves the settling performance. Implementation results show that the proposed method outperforms the conventional proximate time-optimal servomechanism by about 30% in settling time.
