Aircraft Longitudinal Flight Control
This example shows how to model flight control for the longitudinal motion of an aircraft. First-order linear approximations of the aircraft and actuator behavior are connected to an analog flight control design. The analog
Uses the pilot stick pitch command as the set point for the aircraft pitch angle
Uses the aircraft pitch angle and pitch rate to determine controller commands
To perturb the system, the model implements a simplified
Dryden Wind Gust Models subsystem.
To instrument your model without adding blocks, consider using the Viewer & Generation Manager. To open the manager, on the Simulation tab, in the Prepare section, select Viewers Manager. In this example, the Viewer & Generation Manager is configured to log two signals,
alpha, to the Scope block named
slexAircraftData.m file stores model parameters. The model loads
slexAircraftData.m into the model workspace. To view and edit model workspace data, use the Model Explorer. To open the explorer, on the Modeling tab, in the Design section, select Model Explorer.
To run the simulation, click Run. The
Scope1 block displays the
