This paper presents a method to perform model-free fixed structure controller synthesis. Based on frequency response data of the plant, the parameters of a predefined controller structure are optimized directly with respect to closed-loop performance specifications. As a result, no parametric plant model is required such that time consuming iterative identification-synthesis procedures can be omitted. A framework is presented to both assure stability and optimize closed-loop performance based on frequency response data. Furthermore, based upon these results, a cost-function is formulated that can be exploited to converge from a destabilizing- to the stabilizing controller parameter region. Both the stability guarantee and performance optimization procedures are combined in one optimization algorithm that is illustrated by means of an example.
