A new experimental set-up, two inverted pendulums on carts coupled by a spring, is presented in this brief paper. The plant to be controlled is modelled as an example of a large unstable nonlinear system consisting of two subsystems. Such an experimental system can be used for many control studies, in particular for the study of the control of non-linear systems with coupled unstable subsystems.
