The paper presents the application of the tensor product (TP)-based model transformation technique to model and control the cart position of single-input multi-output pendulum-cart systems (PCSs). The modeling is first carried out. The derived TP model, the nonlinear model of PCS, and the laboratory equipment are tested in the same open-loop scenario, and their corresponding outputs are collected, measured, and compared. The parallel distributed compensation (PDC) technique is next applied to TP-based cart position controller design. A linear state feedback control design is also designed in order to conduct a comparative analysis. The two proposed control system structures are experimentally validated and tested in the same scenarios on the laboratory equipment, and their performance indices are analyzed and compared.
