Abstract

The feedforward path of an autopilot is designed for the longitudinal dynamics of a tactical missile. A linear parameter-varying model is used to synthesize a self-scheduled control law based on a parameter-dependent Lyapunov function. The controller is evaluated on a nonlinear model of industrial complexity both under nominal conditions and parametric uncertainty. Tracking performance is significantly enhanced while leaving robustness properties of an existing feedback controller unaltered.
