The rotary inverted pendulum trainer is a bench-top unit designed with the aim of teaching about hybrid control systems through fine-tuning a swing-up control system. The rotary inverted pendulum can be utilized for study in a number of fields, including fuzzy control, in addition to instructing intermediate control methods. The trainer also aims to learn practical problem-solving techniques for mechanical and aeronautical engineering in this session. The segway self-balancing electric vehicle on two wheels is a traditional application scenario for the design challenge.

  • The rotary inverted pendulum trainer demonstrates hybrid control systems by fine-tuning a swing-up control system.
  • The trainer consists of:
    • Rotary arm.
    • Pendulum.
    • Encoder.
  • Trainees can learn how to balance a vertical rod at the end of a revolving arm using the trainer.
  • The training unit can be utilized to study fuzzy control, hybrid control, and non-linear control, in addition to instructing intermediate control methods.
  • The rod and shaft angles can be sensed via high-resolution encoders.
  • The trainer fastens to the rotary servo base unit and enables adjustment of the pendulum.
