This paper describes the development of a feedback controller for rejecting wind disturbances on a crane payload. The goal of this research is to perform in-situ parameter sensitivity testing that is specific to a given crane structure. Through experimentation, this paper evaluates the robustness of a closed-loop controller that implements station keeping on a bridge crane. A set of general trends were developed to describe how altering system parameters and operating conditions affected controller performance. Such findings are not limited to single parameter characterization and can be extended to multiple variables given specific system specifications.
