This article is basically focused on application of the Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithm to the estimation of high speed an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) dynamics. In the normal operation conditions of AUV, conventional UKF gives sufficiently good estimation results. However, if the measurements are not reliable because of any kind of malfunction in the estimation system, UKF gives inaccurate results and diverges by time. This study, introduces Robust Unscented Kalman Filter (RUKF) algorithms with the filter gain correction for the case of measurement malfunctions. By the use of defined variables named as measurement noise scale factor, the faulty measurements are taken into the consideration with a small weight and the estimations are corrected without affecting the characteristic of the accurate ones. In the presented RUKF's, the filter gain correction is performed only in the case of malfunctions in the measurement system and in all other cases procedure is run optimally with regular UKF. Checkout is satisfied via a kind of statistical information. In order to achieve that, the fault detection procedure is introduced. Two different RUKF algorithms, one with single scale factor and one with multiple scale factors, are proposed and applied for the motion dynamics parameters estimation process of an AUV. The results of these algorithms are compared for different types of measurement faults in different estimation scenarios and recommendations about their applications are given. © 2012 IEEE.


Fault tolerant attitude estimation for pico satellites using robust adaptive UKF
Söken, Halil Ersin (2012-10-09)
Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is a filtering algorithm which gives sufficiently good estimation results for estimation problems of nonlinear systems even when high nonlinearity is in question. However, in case of system uncertainty or measurements malfunctions the UKF becomes to be inaccurate and diverges by time. This study, introduces a fault tolerant attitude estimation algorithm for pico satellites. The algorithm uses a Robust Adaptive Unscented Kalman Filter (RAUKF) which performs correction for proces...
Reconfigurable UKF for in-flight magnetometer calibration and attitude parameter estimation
Söken, Halil Ersin (2011-01-01)
In this study a reconfigurable unscented Kalman filter (UKF) based algorithm for the estimation of magnetometer biases and scale factors is proposed as a part of the attitude estimation scheme of a pico satellite. Algorithm is composed of two stages; in first stage UKF estimates magnetometer biases and scale factors as well as six attitude parameters of the satellite. Differently from the existing algorithms, scale factors are not treated together with the other parameters as a part of the state vector; thr...
Aerodynamic optimization of turbomachinery cascades using Euler/boundary-layer coupled genetic algorithms
Oksuz, O; Akmandor, IS; Kavsaoglu, MS (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2002-05-01)
A new methodology is developed to find the optimal aerodynamic performance of a turbine cascade. A boundary-layer coupled Euler algorithm and a genetic algorithm are linked within an automated optimization loop. The multiparameter objective function is based on the blade loading. For a given inlet Mach number and baseline cascade geometry, the flow inlet and exit angles, the blade thickness and the solidity are optimized by a robust genetic algorithm. First, the Sanz subcritical turbine cascade is selected ...
Robust Attitude Estimation Using IMU-Only Measurements
Candan, Batu; Söken, Halil Ersin (2021-01-01)
© 1963-2012 IEEE.This article proposes two novel covariance-tuning methods to form a robust Kalman filter (RKF) algorithm for attitude (i.e., roll and pitch) estimation using the measurements of only an inertial measurement unit (IMU). KF-based and complementary filtering (CF)-based approaches are the two common methods for solving the attitude estimation problem. Efficiency and optimality of the KF-based attitude filters are correlated with appropriate tuning of the covariance matrices. Manual tuning proce...

In this study, swing up and stabilization of on/off type of cold gas thruster driven inverted pendulum is accomplished. First, pulse width modulator (PWM) design method is generated to obtain quasi-linear thrust output from on/off type of thruster. Than, single axis angle controller is designed. Designed angle controller and PWM scheme are tested and verified on single axis angle control test setup. Finally, an other freedom is attached to single axis test setup and rotary inverted pendulum (Furuta Pendulum...
