Robust tracking and disturbance rejection problem, which is commonly referred as the robust servomechanism problem, is considered for linear hybrid systems. The necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a solution to this problem are presented. It is shown that, these conditions are exact counterparts of the conditions in the case of linear continuous-state systems or linear discrete-event systems. Furthermore, as in the case of continuous-state systems or discrete-event systems, the solution (if exists) involves two parts: (i) a servocompensator which mimics the dynamics of the reference and disturbance; and (ii) a stabilizing compensator which asymptotically stabilizes the system obtained by augmenting the plant and the servocompensator.
