Principle of Active System Control: Aspects of Implementation

  • Igor Schagaev
  • Brian Robinson Kirk


Active system control (ASC) as a concept has been introduced theoretically in the previous chapters. Here we present some aspects and methods of implementation for an aircraft or other transport vehicle, where this generalisation is possible. Using flight modes and physical elements of aircraft we present solutions and practical schemes for implementing active system control. The key algorithms needed to detect potentially dangerous situations and their consequences are introduced and explained, as well as the likely reason(s) for their occurrence.
