Abstract

This paper presents the study of a fuzzy optimal covariance control problem for wing shaping control of coupled aeroelastic aircraft models at various flight conditions and subject to actuator amplitude and rate constraints. Using Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy modeling and Parallel Distributed Compensation techniques, the stability and the constraints can be cast as a multi-objective optimization problem in the form of Linear Matrix Inequalities. By utilizing the formulations and solutions for the output covariance constrained problems, we develop a fuzzy full-state feedback controller and a fuzzy full-order observer for aeroelastic aircraft with flexible wings. The efficacy of the proposed controllers are examined on the NASA Generic Transport Model which is configured with the Variable Camber Continuous Trailing Edge Flaps.
