One of the earliest stages in the design of a flight control system (FCS) for a civil aircraft is based on the use of linear aircraft models to produce an initial controller structure. This is because linear models, usually based on small perturbations of the full nonlinear aircraft model at a point in the aircraft flight envelope, are easier and quicker to analyse mathematically. Both traditional single-input single-output (SISO) methods and most modern methods depend on this linear-synthesis stage to produc…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
