Here, we present an example of an application of the output integral sliding mode. We will apply that method to a magnetic levitator. We will consider a magnetic bearing system, which is composed of a planar rotor disk and two sets of stator electromagnets: one acting in the y-direction and the other acting in the x-direction. This system may be decoupled into two subsystems, one for each direction, with similar equations. Here, only the linearized subsystem in the y-direction is considered.
