In this chapter, a self-oscillation is generated in a double integrator with application to a 3-DOF experimental helicopter with two control inputs. Two TRCs were used to generate periodic motion at the pitch, roll, and yaw angles. The amplitude and frequency of oscillations depend on the value of the coefficient of the TRC whose formulas were synthesized through the DF method. The performance of the proposed controller, applied to an underactuated 3-DOF helicopter, was verified by simulations.
