DIRECT IDENTIFICATION OF DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS WITH APPLICATION TO AIR-VEHICLES

The objective of this study is to show how this identification method can be applied for direct identification and also for optimal control of complex linearized dynamical systems. The method presented is based on the fact that the system response is given by the state-transition matrix and by the convolution integral. The identification problem is not to determine the unknown system parameter matrices of the state-variable description, but to measure a set of matrices M by input/output experiments. These matrices M are then used for system representation, and directly for designing optimal feedbacks using a quadratic performance index. This identification method has been applied with success to a large transport aircraft. The matrix set M was measured on a flight simulator, and used for optimizing the landing the take-off maneuver.
