Disturbance observer based dynamic surface flight control for an uncertain aircraft

To handle the flight control problem of an uncertain aircraft with highly nonlinear characteristics, internal uncertainties and external disturbances, an adaptive dynamic surface controller based on nonlinear disturbance observer is designed in this paper. A novel nonhomogeneous nonlinear disturbance observer is designed to approximate the uncertainties and disturbances, which can exactly estimate the disturbances in finite time. Dynamic surface control is utilized to avoid the explosion of complexity in traditional backstepping design. Through Lyapunov synthesis, the closed-loop control system is demonstrated to be semi-globally uniformly ultimately bounded and the tracking error converges to a small neighborhood of origin. Besides, actuator dynamics are taken into account, and the controller for actuator dynamics with consideration of limitation is developed based on sliding-mode control theory. The effectiveness of the proposed control is shown by simulation experiments.
