Abstract:

An unstable pitch control system of a terminal homing missile was formerly stabilized using a high order stabilization filter that was realized using active elements. A new dominant-data matching method is presented to redesign the high-order stabilization filter for obtaining reduced-order filters. As a result, the implementation cost is reduced and the reliability increased. An algebraic method is also applied to improve the performance of the redesignated pitch control system. In addition, the proposed dominant-data matching method can be applied to determine a reduced-order model of a high-order system. Unlike most existing model reduction methods, the reduced-order model has the exact assigned frequency-domain specifications of the original system. Computer-aided design methods can also be applied to design general control systems.
