Abstract:

Feedback systems along with several self-adaptive systems previously developed are introduced. A linearized mathematical solution of the adaptive loop of the controller is developed using time-varying parameter-perturbation system analysis. Simulation of the system is completed with the model reference parameter-perturbation self-adaptive controller successfully tracking and controlling sinusoidal and square wave disturbances in aerodynamic gain. A discussion of the results of the simulation is included. Several recommendations for further work in this study are stated. Author
