Abstract: This paper presents the initial investigation of nonlinear control for a magnetic spring. The combination of a magnet pair in repulsion and a magnet pair in attraction create a spring with a quadratic force curve. At its nominal position, it is a marginally stable system that has interesting vibration isolation properties. Non-linear control is shown to be effective in stabilising the system.
