This study explores the efficacy of software simulation in refining control system design, focusing on the implementation of a fuzzy controller within a Ball & Beam system. The proposed fuzzy controller, validated through SIMULINK simulation experiments, demonstrated robust performance in handling disturbances, inaccuracies, and noise. Employing a cascade structure for dual control, managing both beam angle and ball position, enhanced disturbance rejection and overall system performance.
