This paper focuses on the problem of the application of inverse dynamics control methods to robots with flexible joints and electromechanical actuators. Due to drawbacks of the continuous-time inverse dynamics, discussed in the paper, a new control strategy in discrete-time is presented. The proposed control algorithm is based on numerical methods conceived for the solution of index-three systems of differential-algebraic equations. The method is computationally efficient and admits low sampling frequencies. The results of numerical experiments confirm the advantages of the designed control algorithm.
