Nonlinear L1 adaptive control of an airplane with structural damage

Nonlinear L1 adaptive control of an airplane with structural damage This paper investigates the design of a novel nonlinear L1 adaptive control architecture to stabilize and control an aircraft with structural damage. The airplane nonlinear model is developed considering center of gravity variation and aerodynamic changes due to damage. The new control strategy is applied by using nonlinear dynamic inversion as a baseline augmented with an L1 adaptive control strategy on NASA generic transport model in presence of un-modeled actuator dynamics, wing and vertical tail damage. The L1 adaptive controller with appropriate design of filter and gains is applied to accommodate uncertainty due to structural damage and un-modeled dynamics in the nonlinear dynamic inversion loop, and to meet desired performance requirements. The properties of the proposed nonlinear adaptive controller are investigated against a model reference adaptive control, a robust model reference adaptive control, and an adaptive sliding mode control strategy. The results clearly represent the excellent overall performance of the designed controller. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part G: Journal of Aerospace Engineering SAGE

Abstract

This paper investigates the design of a novel nonlinear L1 adaptive control architecture to stabilize and control an aircraft with structural damage. The airplane nonlinear model is developed considering center of gravity variation and aerodynamic changes due to damage. The new control strategy is applied by using nonlinear dynamic inversion as a baseline augmented with an L1 adaptive control strategy on NASA generic transport model in presence of un-modeled actuator dynamics, wing and vertical tail damage. The L1 adaptive controller with appropriate design of filter and gains is applied to accommodate uncertainty due to structural damage and un-modeled dynamics in the nonlinear dynamic inversion loop, and to meet desired performance requirements. The properties of the proposed nonlinear adaptive controller are investigated against a model reference adaptive control, a robust model reference adaptive control, and an adaptive sliding mode control strategy. The results clearly represent the excellent overall performance of the designed controller.
