A two-degree-of freedom (2 DOF) control structure is proposed for read/write head servo systems of hard disk drives (HDDs). This structure is applied to both track seeking and track following, and makes mode switches found in conventional HDD servo systems unnecessary. Two innovative features introduced in the paper are: 1) a new method for generating the reference signal for track seeking and 2) two robust feedback control schemes for rejection of disturbances; one scheme uses a disturbance observer (DOB), and the other uses adaptive robust control (ARC). Simulation results show that the 2 DOF structure with ARC provides better performance than either the conventional servo system with mode switches or the 2 DOF structure with DOB. Experimental results show the advantage of the new reference generation method and the use of the DOB-based robust controller
