This study discusses mixed H_2/H_inf controller design problem for uncertain Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) systems with a time delay. More precisely, the goal is to find an internally stabilizing controller that minimizes the H_2 performance measure subject to robust stability condition which bounds the H_inf norm of the weighted closed loop transfer function. Two different methods are used to find the optimal H_2 controller. These methods are compared and their pros and cons discussed. The key point in the optimal controller is that, it is in Smith predictor form that includes an internal feedback in the form of an Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter. These types of controllers are easy to implement and programmed in physical systems. A case study is considered to show the exact way to controller design. The simulation results and the effects of delay term on the performance measure are also provided.
