Using the Laplace domain synthesis technique documented in earlier publications, experiments on the closed-loop point-to-point position control of a flexible beam are presented. Two different approaches are described, a feed-forward control and an iterative open-loop control. Solution to the robustness problems encountered during actual implementation is also demonstrated.
