Designing and Modeling a Control System for Aircraft in the Presence of Wind Disturbance (TECHNICAL NOTE)


, K. N.Toosi University of Technology


This paper proposes a switching adaptive control for trajectory tracking of unmanned aircraft systems. The switching adaptive control method is designed to overcome the wind disturbance and achieve a proper tracking performance for control systems. In the suggested system, the wind disturbance is regarded as a finite set of uncertainties; a controller is designed for each uncertainty, and a performance signal is obtained for switching between controllers through a set of visualizers. Each sub-system is robustly stable and the hysteresis logic-based switching is used to obtain the stabilization of a general system. The new system indicates more appropriate results for overcoming the air disturbance compared with the back-stepping adaptive controllers. Finally, the modeling results for the performance of the designed controller are presented.
