In this paper, we have shown how to simplify an algorithm for the two-stage design of linear feedback controllers by reducing computational requirements. The algorithm is further simplified for linear discrete-time systems with slow and fast modes (multitime scale systems or singularly perturbed systems), providing independent and accurate designs in slow and fast time scales. The simplified design procedure and its very high accuracy are demonstrated on the eigenvalue assignment problem of a steam power system.
