A two-link flexible arm with nonuniform or variable cross-section by design will be considered based on an exact PDE model with boundary conditions. In this research, the nonlinear controller is used to achieve set-point regulation of the rigid modes as well as suppression of elastic vibrations. The control laws are obtained by energy based Lyapunov approach. © 2006 IEEE.
