Title of the thesis:Embedded predictive control of a laboratory inverted pendulum system
Summary:This thesis deals with an embedded implementation of model predictive control using the STM32F4 Discovery board. Its purpose is to provide control input for a laboratory inverted pendulum system to stabilize the pendulum in its unstable equilibrium position and to maintain it even when the cart's reference position is changed. The first part presents derived mathematical model of the system with extended Kalman filter used for state estimation. This is followed by the design of swing-up/swing-down control and predictive stabilization control based on quadratic programming. The experimental part features a PC-based implementation using MATLAB/Simulink Real-Time and an embedded implementation on a 32-bit STM32F407VG microcontroller, and features a detailed description of the used open-source software and the designed control panel. Finally, experimental results demonstrate control performance using both platforms.
Key words:model predictive control, embedded implementation, STM32F4, inverted pendulum, microcontroller
