In this paper, real-time embedded control is designed via LabVIEW software for swinging-up a pendulum from its pending position to its upright position. Since the pendulum system has a typical nonlinear instable model, the control problem is achieved using the Astrom-Furuta energy control strategy. To overcome the complexities for the design and the real-time implementation of the controller of the nonlinear system, FPGA and real-time modules of LabVIEW software are used. A validation test is finally achieved using Proteus software via its Virtual Simulation Models (VSMs).
