Abstract

The control of systems with uncertain nonlinear dynamics is an important field of control science attracting decades of focus. In this dissertation, four different control strategies are presented using sliding mode control, adaptive control, dynamic compensation, and neural network for a nonlinear aeroelastic system with bounded uncertainties and external disturbance. In Chapter 2, partial state feedback adaptive control designs are proposed for two different aeroelastic systems operating in unsteady flow. In Chapter 3, a continuous robust control design is proposed for a class of single input and single output system with uncertainties. An aeroelastic system with a trailingedge flap as its control input will be considered as the plant for demonstration of effectiveness of the controller. The controller is proved to be robust by both athematical proof and simulation results. In Chapter 3, a robust output feedback control strategy is discussed for the vibration suppression of an aeroelastic system operating in an unsteady incompressible flowfield. The aeroelastic system is actuated using a combination of leading-edge (LE) and trailing-edge (TE) flaps in the presence of different kinds of gust disturbances. In Chapter 5, a neural-network based model-free controller is designed for an aeroelastic system operating at supersonic speed. The controller is shown to be able to effectively asymptotically stabilize the system via both a Lyapunov-based stability proof and numerical simulation results.
