Abstract:

In this paper the pilot-aircraft loop in the nonstationary nonlinear control tasks is considered. The method of creating an adaptive pilot model is suggested on the basis of assuming the existence of the internal describing model of the control object IDMCO. On the grounds of the calculation results the criterion of the quality estimation of the control process is formulated to be used while solving the control tasks. The methods of experimental research of the abrupt changes in the aircraft dynamics on the simulator are developed. The results of the developed criterion experimental validation and its use for the analysis of the pilot induced oscillations PIO are presented.
