In this paper, we comprehensively present and derive two INDI principle based guidance laws for fixed wing aircrafts. More specifically, two control methods are mathematically derived in detail, where the first decouples the lateral and the longitudinal channels while the second takes the interactions into account. The cumbersome mathematical operations involved in the derivation process aim at reaching a more concise control method and also at providing the community with clearer physical concepts behind this formula. The reason for manipulating transformation matrices is to find a univariate function and to isolate the variable as a virtual input. Efficient and modular guidance control law is then permitted. Lastly, the proposed guidance methods are applied to a 6 dof nonlinear platform under various flight modes to demonstrate the feasibility and advantages.

This paper presents a novel suboptimal attitude tracking controller based on the algebraic Riccati equation for a near-space hypersonic vehicle (NSHV). Since the NSHV’s attitude dynamics is complexly nonlinear, it is hard to directly construct an appropriate algebraic Riccati equation. We design the construction based on the Chebyshev series and the Koopman operator theory, which includes three steps. First, the Chebyshev series are considered to transform the error dynamics of the NSHV’s attitude into a polynomial system. Second, the Koopman operator is used to obtain a series of high-dimensional linear dynamics to approximate each of the polynomial system’s vector fields. In this step, our contribution is to determine a well-posed linear dynamics with the minimal dimension to approximate the original nonlinear vector field, which helps to design the control law and analyze the control performance. Third, based on the high-dimensional dynamics, the NSHV’s attitude error dynamics is separated into the linear part and the nonlinear part, such that the algebraic Riccati equation can be constructed according to the linear part. Then, the suboptimal error feedback control law is derived from the algebraic Riccati equation. The closed-loop control system is proved to be locally exponentially stable. Finally, the numerical simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the suboptimal control law.

Abstract In this paper, a hybrid mass damper (HMD) and its hyperstability thanks to a power flow approach are studied. The HMD proposed combines an active control system with an optimal passive device. The initial passive system is an electromagnetic Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) and the control law is a modified velocity feedback with a phase compensator. The resulting hybrid controller system is theoretically hyperstable and ensures fail-safe behavior. Experiments are performed to validate the numerical simulation and provide good results in terms of vibration attenuations. Both excitation from the bottom in the frequency domain and shock response in the time domain are tested and analyzed. The different power flows in terms of active and reactive powers are estimated numerically and experimentally on the inertial damper (passive and active) and on the HMD. More over, through a mechanical analogy of the proposed system, it is shown that this hybrid device can be seen as an active realization of an inerter based tuned-mass-damper associated with a sky-hook damper. Observations and analysis provide insight into the hyperstable behavior imposed by the specific control law.

Abstract This paper addresses logarithmic quantizers with dynamic sensitivity design for continuous-time linear systems with a quantized feedback control law. The dynamics of state quantization and control quantization sensitivities during “zoom-in”/“zoom-out” stages are proposed. Dwell times of the dynamic sensitivities are co-designed. It is shown that with the proposed algorithm, a single-input continuous-time linear system can be stabilized by quantized feedback control via adopting sensitivity varying algorithm under certain assumptions. Also, the advantage of logarithmic quantization is sustained while achieving stability. Simulation results are provided to verify the theoretical analysis.

In this paper, a variable gain prescribed performance control law is proposed for dynamic positioning (DP) of ships with positioning error constraints, input saturation and unknown external disturbances. The error performance index functions are designed to preset the prescribed performance bounds and the error mapping functions are constructed to incorporate the prescribed performance bounds into the DP control design. The variable gain technique is used to limit the output amplitude of the control law to avoid input saturation of the system by dynamically adjusting the control gain of the DP control law according to the positioning errors, and the error mapping function replaces the positioning error as a recursive sliding-mode surface to realize the prescribed performance control of the system and guarantee the stability of the closed-loop system with variable control gains. It has been proved that the proposed DP control law can make the uniformly ultimately boundedness of all signals in the DP closed-loop control system. The numerical simulation results illustrate that the proposed control law can make the ship’s position and heading maintain at the desired value with positioning error constraints, enhance the non-fragility of the DP control law to the perturbation of system’s parameters and improve the system’s rejection ability to external disturbances.

Abstract In this work, a novel control engineering method is proposed to achieve a control strategy by vaccination for the COVID-19 epidemic. A proper mathematical model with vaccination control is developed for the COVID-19 system based on the Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Recovered (SEIR) epidemiological model after conducting some analyses and assumptions that reflect the COVID-19 features. Then, the proposed control law is designed using the feedback linearization approach and the H-infinity control framework. In addition, a model reference control is incorporated to ensure that satisfactory time responses are obtained. The Black Hole Optimization (BHO) technique is used to attain the optimality of the proposed control method. Following that, the reported statistics and vaccination plan of the Lombardy region of Italy are utilized to assess the effectiveness of the proposed control law. Ultimately, the simulation results illustrate that the proposed control law can effectively control the COVID-19 system and correctly perform the vaccination plan by tackling the system’s nonlinearity and uncertainty and realizing elegant asymptotic tracking characteristics with reasonable control effort.

Abstract This paper considers a nonlinear suboptimal control problem for a near-space hypersonic vehicle's (NSHV's) attitude dynamics. The least-square and stable manifold methods first solve an unconstrained approximately optimal control law corresponding to the nonlinear attitude model. Then, to further meet the dynamic performance requirement of the attitude control system, a novel strategy based on the Koopman operator, symplectic geometric theory, and the stable manifold theorem is proposed to approximate the eigenvalues of the closed-loop nonlinear unconstrained approximated optimal control system. The weight matrices in the optimal performance index, which directly determine the output responses of the nonlinear attitude dynamics, can be appropriately designed according to the eigenvalues. The final control law considers the actuator constraints. The NSHV's closed-loop attitude control system is proved to be locally exponentially stable, and the suboptimality of the control law is analyzed. Numerical simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
