Abstract : "This paper considers the trajectory tracking problem for uncertain robot manipulators subject to external disturbance torques. The external disturbance torques are assumed to be unknown and time-varying. We present a disturbance observer-based controller which estimates the lumped disturbance (the external disturbance torque combined with the effect of plant uncertainties), and compensates it so that the overall closed-loop system behaves like the nominal closed-loop system that is composed of the nominal model of robot manipulator and the feedback linearization-based tracking controller. A simplified implementation of the proposed controller is also introduced. Simulation results on a robot manipulator are given to validate the performance of the proposed controller."

Keyword : Disturbance observer, robot manipulators, robust control, stability of nonlinear systems.
