Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Using the Lyapunov direct method,a variable structure controller is proposed for the stabilization and robust control of a single inverted pendulum.Theoretical analysis and computer simulations have illustrated that this control scheme can stabilize the pendulum, control the cart displacement and also realize the robust control when the system is subjected to parameter changes.
