FEEDBACK LINEARIZATION AND OPTIMAL CONTROL OF ELECTROMAGNETIC BALL SUSPENSION SYSTEM (EMBSS)
This paper presents the non linear feedback linearization technique and the optimal control of the two models of EMBSS. One of the models has the input as voltage and the other has the input as the current. The two models were analysed and linearized, it was found out that both models are feedback state input-output linearizable. The optimal control was given by the solution of algebraic Riccati equation.
