Mtg: Application of Structural Load Feedback in Flight Control

by @ 10:27 am. Filed under Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design

WEDNESDAY May 23, 2012
SCV Control Systems Chapter
Speaker: Dr. Susan Frost, NASA Ames
Time: Presentation at 6:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Intersil Corp, Bldg 3, 1001 Murphy Ranch Road, Milpitas
RSVP: from website

Reducing the environmental impact of aviation is a goal of the Subsonic Fixed Wing Project under the Fundamental Aeronautics Program of NASAĆ¢??s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate.? Novel aircraft configurations and materials are proposed to improve aerodynamic efficiency and reduce empty vehicle weight, thereby reducing fuel consumption.? These changes create challenges due to increased airframe flexibility and vulnerability to exceedance loads. Advances in sensors and avionics computation power suggest real-time structural load measurements could be used in flight control systems for improved safety and performance.? This talk will present a framework and demonstration of a flight control system using optimal control allocation with structural load constraints and load measurements to achieve safe aircraft operation.? A focus of the talk will be on the formulation and solution of the optimal control allocation problem.
