This lab manual enable students to review 3 topics: modeling, balance control, and swing-up control. Designed for NI ELVIS II/II+.

SKU: ni-labs-047 Categories: , Tag:

This lab manual introduces students the fundamentals of inverted pendulum balance and control. Students complete activities to model a pendulum, design and implement a state-feedback controller to balance the pendulum in the upright position, and design and implement a controller to swing up the pendulum. Each ABET-aligned lab includes an overview of theory, in lab exercises, and assessments.
