Abstract:

Self-organizing control is a form of adaptive control in which the controller uses an incremental model of the plant and identifies parameters in this model by means of calculations based upon recent-term plant excitation and response histories. This report in two volumes presents the theoretical derivation of refinements in self-organizing control techniques yielding substantial reduction of sampling rates of self-organizing controllers and identification of magnitudes as well as polarities of plant gain parameters. Additionally, this report describes the implementation of self-organizing controller logic in the form of breadboard digital hardware, the equations and programs for a PDP-12 computer real-time simulation of remotely piloted vehicle flight with 6 degrees of freedom without limitation to small aerodynamic angles, and design of a demonstration system.
