Control of a simple case of inherently unstable systems.
MetadataShow full item record
Here is a simple example of control of inherently unstable system. An inverted pendulum pivoted on top of a cart is to be stabilized by applying force to the cart through an electric motor. In the electrical laboratory of the United States Naval Postgraduate School, a cart with a stick pivoted on top of it has been built, tested and simulated with CDC 1604 digital computer. The author, Lieutenant Mu-yu Wan of the Chinese Navy, wishes to thank Dr. Harold A. Titus of the United States Naval Postgraduate School for his patient assistance in this work as thesis supervisor.
