Inverted Pendulum Control

Animation of inverted pendulum control system

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

The purpose of this app is to allow the user to view an animation of the Inverted Pendulum system with the step response plot. This allows the user to see the correlation between the plot and the systems physical response.

The animation and the app are based on the Inverted Pendulum: State-Space Controller Design page of controls tutorials:§ion=ControlStateSpace

This method was used because we can easily return the cart position and pendulum angle as well as their respective velocities. For more information on the system model please refer to the Inverted Pendulum: System Modeling page of controls tutorials:§ion=SystemModeling
