The combination of discrete model-predictive control and dynamic trim method
features into a constrained optimal guidance enabling envelope protection on
a high automation level without limiting the basic system performance. This
approach offers a highly integrated solution optimizing the trade-off
between high level flight management needs, low level basic flight control
and aircraft performance constraints while maintaining the overall aircraft
This talk will include 1) introduction of the basic concept and its elements - discrete model predictive control, dynamic trim method and outer-loop-constraints approach - and 2) implementation and demonstration of the concept for longitudinal guidance of an unmanned down-scaled flight test aircraft.
