Linear matrix inequality-based proportional-integral control design with application to F-16 aircraft
by Theodore, Zachary B., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 65; 1603549
Abstract (Summary)

A robust proportional-integral (PI) controller was synthesized for the F-16 VISTA (Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft) using a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach, with the goal of eventually designing and implementing a linear parameter-varying PI controller on high performance aircraft. The combination of classical and modern control theory provides theoretically guaranteed stability and performance throughout the flight envelope and ease of implementation due to the simplicity of the PI controller structure. The controller is designed by solving a set of LMIs with pole placement constraints. This closed-loop system was simulated in MATLAB/Simulink to analyze the performance of the controller. A robust H controller was also developed to compare performance with PI controller. The simulation results showed stability, albeit with poor performance compared to the H controlle
