Rotary Flexible Joint Control

This is a model of Quanser's Rotary Flexible Joint module which consists of a rigid beam mounted on a flexible joint that rotates via a DC motor. The rigid beam's rotation is counteracted by two extension springs anchored to the solid solid frame resulting in a flexible joint. An LQR controller is used to control the angle theta.

This model is ideal for use in the engineering classroom to teach fundamental concepts.
