The series Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage technology transfer in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies , new challenges. Much of this development work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers and the reports of advanced collaborative projects. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. Hard disk drive systems are ubiquitous in todayas computer systems and the technology is still evolving. There is a review of hard disk drive technology and construction in the early pages of this monograph that looks at the characteristics of the disks and there it can be read that: abit density... continues to increase at an amazing ratea, aspindle speed... the move to faster and faster spindle speeds continuea, aform factors... the trend...is downward... to smaller and smaller drivesa, aperformance... factors are improvinga, aredundant arrays of inexpensive disks... becoming increasingly common, and is now seen in consumer desktop machinesa, areliability... is improving slowly... it is very hard to improve the reliability of a product when it is changing rapidlya and finally ainterfaces... continue to create new and improved standards... to match the increase in performance of the hard disks themselvesa.The prevalent trend in hard disk design is towards smaller hard disks with increasingly larger capacities. This implies that the track width has to be ...  to add an additional integrator to the RPT controller. The new design is capable ofanbsp;...
