In this paper, a fast form of nonsingular, terminal, decoupled, sliding-mode control, which utilizes time-varying sliding surfaces, is proposed for a class of fourth-order, single-input, multioutput, nonlinear systems. The novel control law features a fast term, in the manner of fast terminal sliding-mode control, which markedly improves the finite-time sliding-mode convergence speed near zero. Numerical simulation results, which are illustrated with a cart-pole inverted pendulum system and a ball-beam system, demonstrate that the proposed control law achieves, in general, favorable transient response and lower steady-state errors compared to state-of-the-art decoupled terminal sliding-mode control methods.
