Abstract:

This report is concerned with the real-time control of an aircraft using a microcomputer system. The applicability of two optimal control theories-singular perturbation theory and output regulator theory--to this specific problem has been tested. Simulation results indicate that for systems possessing a two-time-scale property, such as an aircraft, singular perturbation theory provides a better solution than output regulator theory, and is also computationally more efficient.
