We treat the problem of robustness of output feedback controllers with respect to singular perturbations. Given a singularly perturbed control system whose boundary layer system is exponentially stable and whose reduced order system is exponentially stabilizable via a (possibly dynamical) output feedback controller, we present a sufficient condition which ensures that the system obtained by applying the same controller to the original full order singularly perturbed control system is exponentially stable for sufficiently small values of the perturbation parameter. This condition, which is less restrictive than those previously given in the literature, is shown to be always satisfied when the singular perturbation is due to the presence of fast actuators and/or sensors. Furthermore, we show explicitly that, in the linear time-invariant case, if this condition is not satisfied then there exists an output feedback controller which stabilizes the reduced order system but destabilizes the full order system.
