Flexible Link

Flexible Link

Design a control system to command the tip position of a flexible link.

This system is similar in nature to the control problems encountered in large light space structures where the weight constraints result in flexible structures that must be controlled using feedback techniques. A DC motor rotates a flexible link from one end in the horizontal plane. The motor end of the link is instrumented with a strain gage that can detect the deflection of the tip.

The objective is to design a feedback controller such that the tip of the beam tracks a desired command while minimizing link deflection and resonance in the system. The system is supplied with a state feedback controller. You may design any other controller you wish.
