Robust Discrete Estimation of the Space Shuttle Main Engine by Jonathan Andrew


This thesis applies recently developed robust Ho, or game-theoretic, estimation algorithms to the Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME). The objective is to process noisy, inaccurate sensor data in order to obtain estimates of pressure in the main combustion chamber and the oxygen to fuel mixture ratio. Each of the estimators are based on discrete-time, state… (More)
