For information devices such as hard disk drives, actuators must be controlled as quickly and precisely as possible. The design of the feedforward input is very important in satisfying these requirements. Therefore, we have proposed design methods based on final-state control so as to reduce its spectrum at the desired frequency points. Furthermore, the final-state control method has been extended to generate the feedforward input using a polynomial. By using a polynomial, the required memory size can be drastically reduced because only the coefficients of the polynomial must be stored. However, when the step number of the input increases, the method may not produce a correct solution because of a numerically ill-posed problem. In this paper, we propose a design method for the final-state control based on a time-symmetric polynomial input. The simulation results show that the proposed method contributes to the improvement of not only the numerically ill-posed problem but also the performance.
