Stabilizing the Oscillations of a Controlled Mechanical System

Nonlinear Systems


A mechanical system subjected to the action of positional forces and small smooth control is considered. It is assumed that in the absence of control, the system may have a family of single-frequency oscillations. A universal control—a nonlinear force that implements and simultaneously stabilizes a cycle in the system—is found. An example is given.
