Sliding Mode Control of Magnetic Levitation Vehicles
The problem of precise control of the air – gap of magnetic levitation vehicles is considered in this paper. A sliding mode controller is designed for the levitation control task. Robustness of the controller was investigated using computer simulations. The results show that the controller is robust to parameter variations of up to ±13% and can tolerate disturbances up to ±400N/Kg.
