Abstract
Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) represents a control strategy which transforms a simplistic control surface commanding into a sophisticated motion control process. This paper discusses the design of two flight controllers for DFCS. One is based on the classical "best practice" design, the other features Total Energy Control System logic. Both control systems were subjected to simulations. The advantage of the TECS proved to be in excellent performance and moderate complexity of the resulting controller structure compared to classical control law design.
Annotation
General Aviation has been traditionally hampered by the expense and time required to get a pilot's license and the instrument rating required for flight in less-than-ideal weather. Modern digital flight control technologies greatly improve handling qualities and flight safety compared to the even best naturally stable, un-augmented aircraft designs.
