Question: 6 an inverted pendulum is a model for a variety...

Question details

6. An inverted pendulum is a model for a variety of situations. For example, a human standing upright with feet on the ground. It can even approximately model a part of walking gait. Here is an inverted pendulum hinged at point O to a motor that applies a torque T. The center of mass of the pendulum G is at a distance L from O. The moment of inertia of the pendulum about O is J. Draw this system as a rotational spring mass system. Find the transfer function from the torque T to angle θ measured from vertical. Is this system stable? Hint: Youll need to linearize your equation before you take Laplace TF.
