Helicopter Maneuver Flight Simulation and Control Law Design
This paper presents a solution to helicopter maneuver flight simulation according to ADS33 flying qualities requirement standard. Associated with aerodynamics and control law design methodology, the proposed scheme achieved satisfactory control performance by analyzing helicopter attitude and control parameter variation law at certain operating condition. To level flight acceleration, method based on force and moment balance is analyzed. To pirouette maneuver, a segment linear approximated trajectory is developed for attitude and velocity stability. All objective function is based on minimizing position error and attitude error. For a single rotor four bladed model helicopter in pirouette maneuver, experimental results certified its efficiency.
