    We present a method for obtaining robust control over a first-order port-Hamiltonian system. The presented method is especially designed for controlling impedance energy-preserving port- Hamiltonian systems. By combining the stabilization results of port-Hamiltonian systems and the theory of robust output regulation for exponentially stable systems, we design a simple finite-dimensional controller for an unstable system that together with output feedback achieves robust output regulation. The method is demonstrated on an example where we implement a robust regulating controller for the one-dimensional wave equation with boundary control and observation.
