PDE Boundary Control for Flexible Articulated Wings on a Robotic Aircraft

  title={PDE Boundary Control for Flexible Articulated Wings on a Robotic Aircraft},
  author={Aditya Avinash Paranjape and Jinyu Guan and Soon-Jo Chung and Miroslav Krstic},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Robotics},
This paper presents a boundary control formulation for distributed parameter systems described by partial differential equations (PDEs) and whose output is given by a spatial integral of weighted functions of the state. This formulation is directly applicable to the control of small robotic aircraft with articulated flexible wings, where the output of interest is the net aerodynamic force or moment. The deformation of flexible wings can be controlled by actuators that are located at the root or… CONTINUE READING
