Control of Stability of Nonlinear Elastic Pendulum

Pavel Pokorny
Simple condition for the stability of vertical large am-
plitude oscillations of nonlinear heavy spring elastic
pendulum is given that is valid for a wide range of con-
trol parameter values. The condition is tested and the
bifurcation responsible for the lost of stability is ex-
plained and illustrated.
