MODELING AND CONTROL OF A GANTRY CRANE SYSTEM
Gantry cranes are a well-known system for transportation of large equipment in the industry. The automation of the transport process is necessary to improve the productivity inside a plant, as a large period of time in the production process is occupied by the transport of the raw materials. Replacing human operator with automatic control ensures lack of sway in the load and a maximum speed of transportation, as it will be shown in the experimental part.
Key words: gantry crane, control, modeling, reference profiling, anti-sway.
