Abstract:

KONPACT is a system of digital computer programs that will rapidly design optimal or suboptimal control systems especially for aircraft with lightly damped modes. This program represents advanced computational techniques to perform modern control synthesis, analysis, and design of automatic control systems. KONPACT augments aircraft mathematical models produced from such advanced programs as the FLEXSTAB Level 2.01.00 with control system dynamics and then designs and analyzes quadratic optimal or suboptimal control systems. The KONPACT Theoretical Description is the first volume of report prepared under Contract F33615-75-C3046. It contains the mathematical description of algorithms used in KONPACT as well as active control synthesis procedures and their application to Active Life Description Control System ALDCS design. It also contains the results of a short study for the effects of model residualization and truncation procedures on control system performance.
