In this contribution, fractional‐order controllers of the type PDμ and PIλ are applied to a class of irrational transfer function models that appear in large‐scale systems, such as networks of mechanical/electrical elements and distributed parameter systems. More precisely, by considering the fractional‐order controller 푘푝+푘휂푠훼 in the Laplace domain with −1≤훼≤1 , a stability analysis in the parameter‐space (푘푝,푘휂,훼) is presented. Furthermore, as a way to measure the controller robustness, the controller's fragility analysis using the parameter‐space (푘푝,푘휂,훼) is derived. Finally, several applications that demonstrate the utility of our results are included.
