Design a Fuzzy Logic Controller with a Non-fuzzy Tuning Scheme for Swing up and Stabilization of Inverted Pendulum

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 308)


In this paper, a new non-fuzzy self-adaptive scheme is proposed for optimal swing up control of the inverted pendulum system. Further, the system stabilization is compared against an automatic fuzzy-based self-tuning technique. Our work proposes a twin fuzzy control scheme for effective control of cart position and inverted pendulum angle. A comparative analysis through simulation demonstrates the feasibility and reliability of the proposed approach.
