Abstract:

An eigenstructure based design methodology for helicopter flight control systems is developed and evaluated in this report. The report provides a detailed review of the application of multivariable design techniques to helicopter flight control systems, a review of applicable handling quality specifications, a description of the mathematical models used, a presentation of the theory of eigenstructure design, application of the theory to a helicopter design problem, and evaluation of the performance and robustness properties of the resulting control laws.
