Output Tracking for a Non-minimum Phase Dynamic Ctol Aircraft Model

  title={Output Tracking for a Non-minimum Phase Dynamic Ctol Aircraft Model},
  author={Claire Tomlin and John Lygeros and Luca Benvenuti and Shankar Sastry},
A dynamic model for the longitudinal axis of a conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) aircraft is presented. Non-minimum phase characteristics in this model result from the fact that the process of generating an upward pitch moment produces a small downward force, causing the aircraft to lose altitude. The model is not full state linearizable and the internal dynamics which remain after input-output linearization using the coordinates of the center of mass as outputs are unstable. The CTOL… CONTINUE READING
