Abstract : "In this work, first we estimate all the system’s state vector, with guarantied precision, for a category of second order underactuated mechanical systems (UMS), exploiting the triangular observer (TO) model that suits to the structure of these systems. Then we propose a sliding mode controller (SMC). The latter uses the estimated states given by the observer. The underactuated system is decomposed into two subsystems, where the sliding surface is constructed in two levels for each subsystem. The proposed controller guaranties the tracking performances, with minimization of chattering phenomenon, due to the constructed observer, even for system with uncertainties. Simulation results show the effectiveness of this strategy of control."

Keyword : Observer, sliding mode control, stability anlysis, uncertainty, underactuated system.
