Implementation of dynamic control of a single-link flexible arm using a government micro-computer.
MetadataShow full item record
Today's demand for a high speed, low weight and large load capable manipulator has spurred the research on flexible manipulators. This thesis centers on an implementation of dynamic control on a single-link flexible arm utilizing a general purpose micro-computer. This research also studies the dynamic behavior of the control system with a brief comparison of the derived flexible-body-model controller to a rigid-body-model controller.
