Stabilizability under Actuator Constraints: an Application to Aircraft Control
1996 (English)In: Proceedings of the 1996 Conference on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems, 1996Conference paper (Refereed)
Many modern aircraft are open loop unstable. The stabilization is complicated by the fact that the control surfaces and their hydraulcactuators saturate. A simple model of these phenomena is to assume that the actuator variable and its derivative are both bounded. If the A-matrix has only one unstable eigenvalue, typical for many cases of unstable aircraft, it becomes possible to completely characterize the region of the state space where stabilization is possible. It is bounded by hyperplanes and surfaces described by exponential functions.
