Rate-free control of nonlinear wing section using pitch and plunge measurements only Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper proposes a novel method to control the nonlinear aeroelastic response of a wing section using pitch and plunge measurements as input for feedback. The leading and trailing edge control deflections are computed using the current pitch and plunge measurements and the filtered states. No pitch and plunge rate measurements are required. The control law is formulated such that the derivative of the candidate Lyapunov function is negative definite. Hence the resulting control makes the system asymptotically stable about the equilibrium point. 2012 AIAA.
