Abstract:

The report contains a describion of nonlinear self adjusting and variable structure automatic control systems for piloted and pilotless flight vehicles. Control problems considered include load stabilization, limitation of critical regimes, and control of variable pitch and roll angles. Emphasis is placed on the extension of stability ranges by appropriate switching of the controller structure. The aditional use of adaptive loops is demonstrated and oscillations arising from intrinsic nonlinear characteristics of electric servo systems dead zones and time lags are examined. Author
