Paper Title:
High Altitude Airship Flight Control System Design and Simulation
  Abstract

The high altitude airship can not have desired performance to control the altitude rapidly and accurately when the elevator or ancillary air bursa charge or deflation is used only, because the elevator has little efficiency when the velocity is low and auxiliary air bursas charge or deflation control is very slow. It is present a method to design flight control system for a high altitude airship using auxiliary air bursas charge or deflation and elevator combination control. This combination control scheme is that the ancillary air bursa and elevator are also used to control the airship attitude to get large raise velocity and the ancillary air bursa control is used to adjust the airship altitude for suspension. In this paper, a high altitude airship model with compound control of elevator and ancillary air bursa charge and deflation is given firstly. Then the combination controller is designed by using fuzzy self-tuning control. Finally, it has been proved by simulation that the flight control system has desirable performance and the compound control scheme is feasible.
