Abstract : A design for the near-optimum discrete-data control of an inverted pendulum is presented. The design incorporates linearization of the system equations; use of a minimum-order observer; and first-order Taylor series expansion of the feedback gain with respect to a parameter. These three design features are evaluated and the results discussed. No serious accumulation of error was observed due to the simultaneous use of all the design features. (Author)
