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: 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.

    ABSTRACT: This paper has developed a sliding mode controller (SMC) based on a radial basis function model for control of magnetic levitation system. Adaptive neural networks controllers need plant's Jacobain, but here this problem solved by sliding surface and generalized learning rule in case to eliminate Jacobain problem. The simulation results show that this method is feasible and more effective for magnetic levitation system control.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, A Sliding Mode Control of Magnetic Levitation system for sampled data output feedback configuration is presented. Both regulation and tracking problems are considered. As all states are not available while control scheme is implemented on real time systems or a noisy output data is obtained because of sensor noise at the plant's output. For this purpose Extended Kalman Filter based estimator is employed to estimate the noise free and unknown states of plant. The control system is also tested under parametric perturbations/uncertainties and external disturbance to prove its robustness. Computer simulations show robust performance of control system.
