Decentralized control design is commonly applied to design controllers for multi-variable control applications. The success of decentralized control design methodologies hinges on the quality of decoupling of the system. The aim of this paper is to develop a decoupling procedure that applies to multi-variable systems and only requires a frequency response function of the system. The proposed method builds on recent tensor decomposition methods. The potential of the method is shown both in a simulation and using experimental data. When applied on noisy data and on real-life systems, which are not possible to be exactly decoupled, the proposed method typically performs better compared to eigen-decomposition based method.
