MATLAB and Simulink Based Books
This text provides an overview and summary of flight control, focusing on the best possible control of spacecraft and aircraft, i.e., the limits of control. The minimum output error responses of controlled vehicles to specified initial conditions, output commands, and disturbances are determined with specified limits on control authority. These are determined using the linear-quadratic regulator (LQR) method of feedback control synthesis with full-state feedback. An emphasis on modeling is also included for the design of control systems.
