Rotary Inverted Pendulum is a highly nonlinear benchmark system used in all control system design laboratories. Since the system is highly nonlinear the issues associated with the system is quite complicated and well suited for a control system design engineer or researchers. The inverted pendulum consists of a rigid link attached to a pivot arm. The arm must move in the horizontal plane in such a way as to keep the pendulum in an upright position. The linearized continuous time state model of the system is derived considering the equilibrium state of the system. Later the continuous state model is converted to discrete time domain and the controllability and observability of the system has been verified. Using the discrete time model a quadratic optimal controller has been designed to stabilize the Inverted pendulum. The simulation results shows that the controller designed is much efficient to bring the pendulum arm to the equilibrium position
