Missile Control using Model Predictive Control (English)
This thesis has been conducted at Saab Bofors Dynamics AB. The purpose was to investigate if a non-linear missile model could be stabilized when the optimal control signal is computed considering constraints on the control input. This is particularly interesting because the missile is controlled with rudders that have physical bounds. This strategy is called Model Predictive Control. Simulations are conducted to compare this strategy with others; firstly simulations with step responses and secondly simulations when the missile is supposed to hit a moving target. The latter is performed to show that the missile can be stabilized in its whole area of operation. The simulations show that the controller indeed can stabilize the missile for the given scenarios. However, this control strategy does not show any obvious improvements in comparison with alternative ones.
