Abstract

A robust controller for controlling the motion of a compliant lightweight, single link arm working under the influence of gravity is presented. A mixed sensitivity H∞ controller is designed where the sensitivity weighting function is manipulated to include an additional integrator in the system to deal with the effect of the gravity disturbance acting on the arm. Simulation results demonstrate the performance of the controller over a range of payload weights
