Approaches to uncertainty modeling for robust control of large flexible space structures (LFSSs) such as additive or multiplicative perturbations in ℋ do not work very well because of the special properties of LFSS dynamics. We propose the use of a left-coprime factorization (LCF) of LFSS dynamics in modal coordinates in order to get improved stability margins and performance in robust control design. The plant uncertainty is then described as stable perturbations of the coprime factors accounting for modal parameter uncertainty and unmodeled dynamics. Two multivariable ℋ designs based on LCFs of 46th-order collocated and noncollocated models of an LFSS experimental testbed are presented together with simulation and experimental results to illustrate the technique
