BETTER PERFORMANCE FOR AIRCRAFT TRACKING AND HOLDING UNDER GUST AND SHEARWIND INFLUENCE BY USE OF DIRECT DIGITAL CONTROL

EIN BEITRAG ZUR ERHOEHUNG DER BAHNFUEHRUNGSGENAUIGKEIT VON FLUGZEUGEN GEGENUEBER WINDSTOERUNGEN MIT HILFE EINER DIREKTEN DIGITALEN STEUERUNG

In this paper, the application of direct digital control for aircraft control is proposed. Using this control technique, no aerodynamic states are considered for the invariance conditions against wind and gust disturbances. Thus, high accuracy for path holding and tracking can be achieved. A simple iteration procedure calculates the control input necessary to compensate the influence of wind on the commanded aircraft acceleration. The inverse solutions of the nonlinear and coupled equations of forces and moments were determined on-line by use of an airborne digital computer.
