A Digital Sliding Mode Controller (DSMC) is synthesized to account for the singular perturbation impacts of an electromagnetically suspended rotor system. The order-reduction method is employed to simplify the design and lower down the order of controllers. The DSMC exhibits superior performance in terms of closed-loop stiffness, rise time and overshoot, in comparison to output feedback control and pole assignment. The presented DSMC not only stabilizes the inherently unstable open-loop system, but also preserves the robustness with respect to the parasitic parameter variation.
