Abstract [en]

A modern fighter aircraft is exposed to very different flight conditions and must despite that perform infallibly in every single situation. Several variables like center of gravity, speed, altitude and weight vary during a standard mission flight or

between flights. For the aircraft to be able to perform effectively, superior manoeuvrability is vital. Hence it is of great importance that the flight control system is capable to cope with these different variations.

In the 1960s professor Isaac Horowitz presented the method Quantitative feedback theory (QFT) which is a method whose aim is to manage system variations. The method can be useful in the construction of the control system for a fighter aircraft. QFT is a frequency based method whose main objective is to shape the

open loop gain in a Nicholschart to meet the required closed loop demands. A prefilter is then applied to achieve correct reference tracking.

This thesis is divided into two parts, where the first part presents the method QFT for both the SISO-systems and for the MIMO-systems. For the MIMOsystems several design techniques are presented, the chapter also includes a method on the implementation of state feedback. Furthermore statements of how nonlinear and unstable systems are handled with the QFT is included.

The second part of the thesis presents the design of a control system for an unstable fighter aircraft. The design is constructed for the SISO longitudinal dynamics as well as for the MIMO lateral dynamics, where the design must be robust against variations in speed, altitude and center of gravity.

The flight control system that is implemented meets almost all requirements and gives good preformance and this is achieved with only a few regulators. Proposals of possible solutions to those requirements note yet reached are discusssed.
