Velocity-Based Gain-Scheduled Lateral Auto-Pilot For An Agile Missile.
Control Engineering Practice, 9.
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.
