The precision motion industry has an ever-increasing demand for faster, more precise and more robust controllers. From the perspective of frequency domain and loopshaping technique, this demand has pushed the linear controllers to their inherent limits, namely, the waterbed effect and Bode's phase-gain relationship. Mathematically, complex-order transfer functions are not bound by Bode's phase-gain relationship. However, implementing them in practice is a challenge to be solved. This extended abstract will show review the previous work of the authors in shaping nonlinearities in reset controllers and contribute and propose an overall architecture for reset control systems to approximate complex order controllers.
