This paper describes the design procedures and design of various controllers for stabilizing a Rotary Inverted Pendulum System (RIPS). A PV (Position-Velocity) controller, LQR (Linear Quadratic Regulator) controller with different weighing matrices and an observer-based controller are tried on RIPS in MATLAB Simulink. The outputs obtained with different weighing matrices are observed and compared for different conclusions. The controllers with the best values obtained in the simulation are
