— Two Link Rigid Manipulator (TLRM) is highly unstable and non-linear system thus its stability is a matter of concern. This paper presents Lagrange-Euler method for deriving the dynamics of TLRM. The uncertain model is considered using LFT. Parametric uncertainty in moment of inertia and co-efficient of friction in the TLRM is considered and uncertainty in actuators. Two different robust control strategies, H∞ and μ-synthesis are used and compared. Results show that μ-synthesis controller has superior robust performance of the proposed two robust control methods.
