USE OF REX CONTROL SYSTEM FOR THE BALL ON SPOOL MODEL
Štěpán Ožana – Martin Pieš – Radovan Hájovský – Tomáš Dočekal
This paper deals with the design and implementation of linear quadratic controller (LQR) for modeling of Ball on Spool. The paper presents the entire process, starting from mathematical model through control design towards application of controller with the use of given hardware platform. Proposed solution by means of REX Control System provides a high level of user comfort regarding implementation of control loop, diagnostics and automatically generated visualization based on HTML5. It represents an ideal example of a complex nonlinear mechatronic system with a lot of possibilities to apply other types of controllers.
