Course Contents
The goal is to design a control system using classical control
theory. The control design is in fact a simple version of a military
jet aircraft flight control system. The flight control system consists
of two parts, namely the design of a pitch rate command system
satisfying CAP/Gibson MIL-specifications and the design of a terrain following command system using optimal control.
Study Goals
To become familiar with classical flight controllers and their
design, and to gain insight in handling qualities of open-loop and controlled aircraft
Education Method
General Practice Exercise
Literature and Study Materials
Course material to support the exercise will be posted on the
blackboard.
Assessment
Exercise
Remarks
A short report about the design of this controller using classical
control theory needs to be written. This report must be handed
in during the second quarter.
Set-up
The exercise is a homework assignment to be solved using
Matlab and Simulink.
