In this paper, a class of aeroelastic systems with an unmodeled nonlinearity and external disturbance is considered. By using leading- and trailing-edge control surface actuations, a full-state feedforward/feedback controller is designed to suppress the aeroelastic vibrations of a nonlinear wing section subject to external disturbance. The full-state feedback control yields a uniformly ultimately bounded result for two-axis vibration suppression. With the restriction that only pitching and plunging displacements are measurable while their rates are not, a high-gain observer is used to modify the full-state feedback control design to an output feedback design. Simulation results demonstrate the efficacy of the multi-input multi-output control toward suppressing aeroelastic vibration and limit cycle oscillations occurring in pre and postflutter velocity regimes when the system is subjected to a variety of external disturbance signals. Comparisons are drawn with a previously designed adaptive multi-input multi-output controller.
