In this work, a practically relevant control problem of compensating harmonic uncertainties is tackled. The problem is formulated and solved here using an active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) methodology. A novel, custom ADRC structure is proposed that utilizes an innovative resonant extended state observer (RESO), dedicated to systems subjected to harmonic interferences. In order to make the introduced solution more industry-friendly, the entire observer-centered control topology is additionally restructured into one degree-of-freedom, compact, feedback error-based form (similar to ubiquitous in practice PID controller). Such reorganization enables a straightforward implementation and commission of the proposed technique in wide range of industrial control platforms, thus potentially increasing its outreach. In order to verify the efficiency of the introduced method, a multi-criteria experimental case study using a torsional plant is conducted in a trajectory tracking task, showing satisfactory performance in vibration suppression, without the often problem of noise amplification due to high observer/controller gains. Finally, a frequency analysis and a rigorous stability proof of the proposed control structure are given.
