Double Pendulum Experiment

Experiment for teaching basic and advanced methods of control theory

Highlights

  • Accurate verified simulation model
  • Several stabilizing controllers
  • Pendulum with ability to swing up and to perform transitions between the equilibrium points
  • Emphasis on the design of H-infinity and Mu-synthesis controllers
  • Using extra hardware, ability to add uncertainty, which makes the stabilization considerably harder

Description

double_pendulum

The double pendulum is an experiment for teaching linear and, to some extent, nonlinear methods of control theory. The pendulum is driven by a DC motor, and the angles that the links make are measured by two high-resolution encoders. The controller is realized in a target computer, and the controllers are synthesized on a host computer. A full and accurate Simulink® model of the plant exists. The real-time software is realized using Simulink Real-Time™.

The use of the pendulum experiment requires MATLAB, Simulink and Control System Toolbox for controller design and simulation, plus Simulink Coder, and Simulink Real-Time for controlling to the experiment hardware.
