Animation of ball & beam state-feedback control system

File Information

This app was developed as part of the web-based control system tutorials available at:

The purpose of this app is to allow the user to view an animation of the ball and beam system with the step disturbance response plot. This allows the user to see the correlation between the plot and the system's physical response.

The animation and the app are based on the Ball & Beam - State-Space Controller Design example page of the tutorials:§ion=ControlStateSpace

A state feedback approach was used because we can easily return the ball position and beam angle as well as their respective velocities. For more information on the system model please refer to the Ball & Beam - System Modeling page of the tutorials:§ion=SystemModeling
