Local model networks based mixed-sensitivity \(H_\infty\) control of CE-150 helicopters. (English) Zbl 1389.93100
Summary: In this paper, a local model network \(H_\infty\) control is proposed for CE-150 helicopter stabilization. The proposed strategy capitalizes on recent developments on \(H_\infty\) control and its promising results in robust stabilization of plants under unstructured uncertainties. CE-150 helicopters are known for their varying operating conditions along with external disturbances. Therefore, local model networks are introduced for their adaptive feature and since they provide a powerful combination of fuzzy logic and conventional linear control techniques to control nonlinear systems without the added computational burden of soft-computing techniques. Using the fact that the system can be linearized at different operating points, a mixed sensitivity \(H_\infty\) controller is designed for the linearized system, and combined within a network to make transitions between them. The proposed control structure ensures robustness, decoupling of the system dynamics while achieving good performance. A comparison is carried-out against the well-known Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control technique. Results are presented to illustrate the controller’s performance in various operating conditions.
