In this paper, a multirate cyclic pseudo-downsampled iterative learning control (ILC) scheme is proposed. The scheme has the ability to produce a good learning transient for trajectories with high frequency components with/without initial state errors. The proposed scheme downsamples the feedback error and input signals every m samples to arrive at slower rate. Then, the downsampled slow rate signals are applied to an ILC algorithm, whose output is then interpolated and applied to an actuator. The main feature of the proposed scheme is that, for two successive iterations, the signal is downsampled with the same m but the downsampling points are time shifted along the time axis. This shifting process makes the ILC scheme cyclic along the iteration axis with a period of m cycles. Experimental results show significant improvement in tracking accuracy. Additional advantages are that the proposed scheme does not need a filter design and also reduces the computation and memory size substantially.
