A methodology for the multiobjective design of controllers is presented, motivated by the problem of designing an active suspension controller. This problem has, as a particular feature, the possibility of being defined with two design variables only. The multiobjective controller is searched inside the space of “optimal controllers” defined by a weighted cost functional. The weightings are taken as the optimization variables for the multiobjective design. The method leads to (local) Pareto-optimal solutions and allows the direct specification of controller constraints in terms of some primary objectives which are taken into account in the multiobjective search.
