A Model based approach for aircraft sensor fault detection
Serçekman, Ömür; Kutay, Ali Türker; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
This thesis presents a reformative approach to a model-based fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) method that improves the capability of aircraft flight control systems and acquires low complexity and computational requirements. The main objective of the FDD techniques that are extensively applied in industrial systems is to increase the sensitivity of fault detection scheme with respect to additional noise, uncertainty or disturbances. The designed fault detection model is integrated to a civil aircraft mod...
A pursuit evasion game between a missile and an aircraft
Şahin, Keziban Didem; Leblebicioğlu, Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2002)
In this thesis an intelligent mechanism is found to help the pilot of an aircraft under missile threat in making decisions to evade from the missile. To make the system realistic, flight simulations for both aircraft and missile are designed and a pursuit evasion game between them is created. In this system, capabilities of the aircraft and the missile are improved both. Flight simulations are made of three main components. These are the dynamic model of the vehicle, its guidance and control units. In this ...
Game theoretic colony control of holonic robots inspecting inner surfaces of pipes
Guciz, AE; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2000-03-02)
The purpose of this work is to plan and control task oriented configuration changes in a metamorphic robotic system, formed by a colony of axisymmetric holons moving to inspect pipe inner surfaces. The metamorphic robotic system in question, is a reconfigurable robotic structure made up of identical, independently controlled, mechatronic modules (holons) constituting a colony. The holons in that colony have very limited individual task abilities and are only capable of connecting, disconnecting and rotating...
Dynamic modeling and control of a hybrid fin actuation system for an air-to-air missile
Çelik, Tayfun; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
Air-to-air missiles require high maneuverability. In order to obtain high maneuverability, hybrid fin actuation systems are used. In this study, a hybrid fin actuation system which is composed of aerodynamic control surfaces and thrust vector control is designed. Both aerodynamic and thrust vector control types are explained and the most suitable pair is determined for air-to-air missile. Then, the designed system is physically constructed and system identification procedure is performed. After that three d...
