Bradshaw, Alan and Shao, Jindi (1996) Swing-up control of inverted pendulum systems. Robotica, 14 (4). pp. 397-405. ISSN 0263-5747
In Part I a technique for the swing-up control of single inverted pendulum system is presented. The requirement is to swing-up a carriage mounted pendulum system from its natural pendent position to its inverted position. It works for all carriage balancing single inverted pendulum systems as the swing-up control algorithm does not require knowledge of the system parameters. Comparison with previous swing-up controls shows that the proposed swing-up control is simpler, eaiser. more efficient, and more robust. In Part II the technique is extended to the case of the swing-up control of double inverted pendulum systems. Use is made of a novel selective partial-state feedback control law. The nonlinear, open-loop unstable, nonminimum-phase. and interactive MIMO pendulum system is actively linearised and decoupled about a neutrally stable equilibrium by the partial-state feedback control. This technique for swing-up control is not at all sensitive to uncertainties such as modelling error and sensor noise, and is both reliable and robust.
