This paper considers the output-tracking control problem of feedback linearizable nonlinear systems in the presence of external disturbances and modeling errors. A robust output feedback nonlinear controller is designed to achieve excellent output-tracking performance. By exploiting the cascade features of backstepping design, a simple disturbance observer (DOB) is proposed to suppress the effects of the uncertainties, and a high-gain observer (HGOB) is applied to estimate the unmeasureable states of the system. Although the DOB-based controllers are usually designed according to linear control theory, in this study, strict analysis of the nonlinear control system is given. Experimental results on a magnetic levitation system are provided to support the theoretical results and to verify the advantages of the proposed controller.
