GSRP: Robust Nonlinear Control for Hypersonic Waveriders with Significant Aero-Thermo-Elastic-Propulsion Interactions and Uncertainty

Project: Research project

Project Details


The proposed work will specifically focus on assessing fundamental performance limitations and obtaining aerodynamic uncertainty bounds for hypersonic flight in the air breathing corridor. These will be used to develop meaningful model-based performance and robustness specifications that will serve as inputs to powerful multivariable control system design methodologies (e.g. robust dynamic inversion, gain scheduling, and constraint enforcement) and provide guidelines for the selection of vehicle design parameters. As such, this work will represent a step toward systematizing the control system design process.
