# Pendulum system with Coulomb friction

## Model description:

Consider a pendulum system with Coulomb friction and external perturbation

$$\ddot {\theta} = \frac{1}{J}u - \frac{g}{L}\sin \theta - \frac{V_s}{J}\dot{\theta } - \frac{P_s}{J}\mathrm{sgn}(\dot{\theta}) + \upsilon,$$

where parameters have the following values $M=1.1$, $L=0.9$, $J=ML^2=0.891$, $V_s=0.18$, $P_s=0.18$, $P_s=0.45$, $g=9.815$, and $v$ is an uncertain external perturbation $|\upsilon| \leq 1$.
