Abstract

This paper deals with an application of eigenstructure assignment to the design of multivariable controllers (with emphasis on the design of output feedback control) which possess certain desirable properties. The set of closed loop eigenvalues and the associated eigenvectors are divided into subsets, and then the eigenstructure is constructed in two consecutive stages. A computer-aided interactive procedure for aircraft lateral handling qualities design, has been developed, and simulation studies have revealed that with feedback, the aircraft exhibits improved Dutch roll damping, desired turn coordination, with reduced roll response to sideslip gusts over the flight envelope.
