The present paper proposes a new design method for a dual-rate system, in which a plant in continuous time is controlled by updating a control input in discrete time, in which the sampling interval of the plant output differs from the update interval of the control input. A dual-rate control law that stabilizes a discrete-time closed-loop system is extended. One of the advantages of such an extension is that the dual-rate control law can be redesigned to be independent of the discrete-time closed-loop system. Consequently, the intersample response can be improved by making it independent of the sampled response using the newly introduced design parameters. The present paper proposes a design method for design parameters to improve the intersample response in the steady state. Numerical examples are presented to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method.
