Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation and Flight Experimentation of the Control System on a Small Solid Rocket
By using the Perturbation Theory and solidification coefficient method, based on the interpolation parameters for optimal control feedback matrix, the design of optimal roll control system for a small solid rocket is achieved. The hardware-in-the-loop simulation platform built with DSPACE real-time simulator and high-precision three axis turntable is designed to validate the optimal control law. As for no feedback device of the steering gear, the radios are used to transfer the signals between the devices in the closed loop simulation system. Finally, through the flight-testing, the results confirm a good stability of the roll control system and the high reliability of the hardware-in-the-loop simulation platform.
