ABSTRACT Proposes a robust nonlinear controller for the position tracking
problem of a magnetic levitation system, which is governed by a SISO
second-order nonlinear differential equation. The controller is designed
in a backstepping manner, based on the nonlinear system model in the
presence of parameter uncertainties. The effects of the parameter
uncertainties are reduced by a nonlinear damping term and the effects of
position error are removed by a PI controller. Input-to-state stability
of the control system is analyzed and experimental results are included
to show the excellent position tracking performance of the designed
control system

    ABSTRACT: Neural network Based controller is used for controlling a magnetic levitation system. Feedback error learning (FEL) can be regarded as a hybrid control to guarantee stability of control approach. This paper presents simulation of a magnetic levitation system controlled by a FEL neural network and PID controllers. The simulation results demonstrate that this method is more feasible and effective for magnetic levitation system control.

    ABSTRACT: Sliding mode control schemes of the static and dynamic types are proposed for the control of a magnetic levitation system. The proposed controllers guarantee the asymptotic regulation of the statesof the system to their desired values. Simulation results of the proposed controllers are given to illustrate the effectiveness of them. Robustness of the control schemes to changes in the parameters of the system is also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, H∞ disturbance attenuation control and sliding mode disturbance estimation and compensation control of a magnetic levitation system are studied. A magnetic levitation apparatus is established, and its model is measured. Then the system model is feedback linearized. A H∞ controller is then designed. For comparison, a sliding mode controller and a PID controller also were designed. Some experiments were performed to compare the performance of the H∞ controller, the sliding mode controller and the PID controller.
