Velocity-Based Gain-Scheduled Lateral Auto-Pilot For An Agile Missile
Leith, D. J. and Tsourdos, A. and White, B.A. and Leithead, W.E. (2000) Velocity-Based Gain-Scheduled Lateral Auto-Pilot For An Agile Missile. Control Engineering Practice, 9 . pp. 1079-1093. ISSN 0967-0661
This paper investigates the application of velocity-based gain-scheduling techniques to a demanding, highly nonlinear, missile control design task. Scheduling on instantaneous incidence (a rapidly varying quantity) is well known to lead to considerable difficulties with conventional gain-scheduling methods. Moreover, the missile dynamics do not have well-defined relative degree at operating points where the lateral velocity is zero and thus conventional feedback linearisation methods cannot be applied to design a controller.
