In this paper, nonlinear rigid body dynamics for rotorcraft mathematical model is studied. A linearization of helicopter flight dynamics is evaluated. Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) with gain scheduled LQ optimal control is designed based on look-up tables. Stability analyses are performed and results are illustrated graphically for open and closed-loop systems. As seen from results, LQ optimal control system pushes eigenvalues to left side of imaginary axis without excessive control…

Design and Comparison of Strategies for Level Control in a Nonlinear Tank

A comparative study of the behavior of the system is carried out, and considering situations much closer to reality, a variety of scenarios, such as step responses, random input disturbances, and momentary load disturbances, are conducted to assess the system’s response.

Adaptive Control

This book, written by two major figures in adaptive control, provides a wealth of material for researchers, practitioners, and students that can be used by designers of control systems to enhance their work through the information on many new theoretical developments.

Optimal Control Theory

Of special interest in the context of this book is the material on the duality of optimal control and probabilistic inference; such duality suggests that neural information processing in sensory and motor areas may be more similar than currently thought.
