Control of a thrust-vectored flying wing : a receding horizon } LPV approach

  title={Control of a thrust-vectored flying wing : a receding horizon \} LPV approach},
  author={Ali Jadbabaie and John Hauser},
This paper deals with the application of receding horizon methods to hover and forward flight models of an experimental tethered flying wing developed at Caltech. The dynamics of the system are representative of a vertical landing and take off aircraft, such as a Harrier around hover, or a thrust-vectored aircraft such as F18-HARV or X-31 in forward flight. The adopted control methodology is a hybrid of receding horizon techniques and control Lyapunov function (CLF)-based ideas. First, a CLF is… CONTINUE READING
