MPC Based Handling Qualities Assessment for a Transportation Aircraft with Failed Actuators

Abstract : The objective of this study is to contribute to the evaluation of the remaining handling qualities of a transportation aircraft in the situation in which some aerodynamic actuators have failed. The maneuverability issue is in this study concentrated on the control of the three rotations along the main axis of a transportation aircraft. The solution approach adopted here is to perform at first an off-line study using a realistic flight simulation model of the aircraft to design a controller for the deflection of the remaining actuators with the objective of performing in a nominal way the considered reference maneuvers. When the control objective cannot be achieved, downgraded handling qualities are identified. The offline controller design approach follows the main steps of classical Model Predictive Control (MPC). The remaining of this paper describes the way this control approach has been developed to produce a useful tool to estimate the remaining handling qualities of an aircraft with failed actuators.
