Automatic Control of Aircraft

Part of the Control Engineering book series (CONTRENGIN)


To derive linear aircraft flight dynamics plant for use in automatic flight control system design. To decouple aircraft dynamics into longitudinal and lateral-directional plants, and to briefly study the stability and control derivatives. To consider modeling of servo actuators for aircraft’s engine and control surfaces. To present single- and multi-variable automatic flight control systems (stability augmentation systems and autopilots) for both longitudinal and lateral-directional dynamics. To design and analyze aircraft control systems using both transfer function and state-space methods
