A novel composite control scheme for a manipulator with flexible links and joints is presented that uses the singular perturbation technique (SPT) to divide the manipulator dynamics into reduced order slow and fast subsystems. A neural network controller is then applied for the slow subsystem and a state-feedback H controller for the fast subsystem. Results are presented that demonstrate improved performance over an alternative SPT-based controller that uses inverse dynamics and LQR controllers.
