An example of the underactuated mechanical system, which is a pendulum, whose motion is controlled by the ro tation of a flywheel, is investigated. The explicit form of the control law of the flywheel rotation, which ensures the stabilization of the upper equilibrium position of the pendulum, is obtained.

Keywords: equilibrium position, global asymptotic stability, inertial flywheel, underactuated mechanical system
