Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis presents an adaptive model reference controller for a highly maneuverable high performance aircraft, in particular, a modified F18. An adaptive controller is developed to maneuver an aircraft at a high angle of attack. Thus, the aircraft is required to fly over a highly nonlinear flight regime. The adaptive controller presented in this thesis can be viewed as a combination of a linear and a nonlinear controller. Around a fixed flight condition the adaptive controller converges to a linear controller; however, the controller remains a nonlinear controller during maneuvers. The contributions of this thesis lie in two areas. The first area is in control. A successful application of linear adaptive control is presented for a highly nonlinear system. A new method is used to generate the reference trajectory. The reference model uses output feedback to improve the reference trajectory. It is shown that this improvement is necessary because of the control limitations. This work is also important to the control of highly maneuverable high performance aircraft. A successful adaptive controller has been developed to rapidly maneuver an aircraft to a high angle of attack. The main focus of this thesis is adaptive control.
