Öznurlu, Can
The focus of this thesis is to control the lateral-directional motion of the fighter aircraft by using integral action based Model Predictive Control (MPC) where the model is obtained by data-driven model discovery method. Dynamic Mode Decomposition with Control (DMDc) is used as a model discovery technique based only on measurement data with no modeling assumptions. The model created using this technique is used for MPC and tested against noisy conditions. In addition, performance comparison of MPC with Classical Controller is carried out. Finally, Speedgoat Unit Real-Time Target Machine®, which offers a real-time esting is used to verify the generated DMDc-MPC algorithm and understand the computational cost. The results show that the DMDc model discovery method performs very well in noisefree situations and meets the evaluation criteria together with MPC. However, its performance decreases in the presence of measurement noise. Finally, real-time test results on Speedgoat® equipment have shown that the generated DMDc-MPC algorithm has low computational cost and can be used in systems with low computational power.

The subject of the experimental investigation presented in this paper is to measure the dynamic stability derivatives of a generic combat aircraft model in the Ankara Wind Tunnel by using the direct forced oscillation technique. The model, used for the tests is the AGARD, Standard Dynamic Model (SDM). The aerodynamic loads acting on the model are measured with a five component internal strain gauge balance placed inside the oscillating model. The paper presents the experimental set-up used to create the osc...
Nonlinear modelling and control of the flow over aerofoils using CFD simulations
Karaca, H. D.; Alıcı, Gökçen Deniz; KASNAKOĞLU, Coşku (2016-09-01)
A simulation based approach for nonlinear dynamical modelling and feedback control of the drag to lift ratio for aerofoils is investigated through case studies involving NACA 23012, ag13 and b737a aerofoils. The flow around the aerofoils is studied via numerical solutions of the 2D Navier-Stokes (NS) equations. A standard computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver is extended to be able to measure desired feedback values and to apply a control input to the flow field. The proposed modelling and control appro...
Model Predictive Control for a PUC5 based Dual Output Active Rectifier
Makhamreh, Hamza; Trabelsi, Mohamed; Kukrer, Osman; Abu-Rub, Haitham (2019-01-01)
In this paper, an effective finite-control-set model predictive controller (FCS-MPC) is proposed for an active dual output rectifier. The topology under study is a 5-level packed U cells (PUC5) rectifier. The optimized cost function is designed based on the capacitors' voltages and current errors. The Capacitors' reference voltages and the peak value of the reference grid current are used to normalize the errors within the cost function. The peak value of the current reference is generated by a PI controlle...
Intuitionistic, 2-way adaptive fuzzy control
Gurkan, E; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (1999-05-15)
Our objective in this paper is to develop a 2-way adaptive fuzzy control system that makes use of the intuitionistic fuzzy sets for modeling expert knowledge bearing uncertainty. Adaptive fuzzy control systems are fuzzy logic systems whose rule parameters are automatically adjusted through training. The training of such system was applied until now, to supports of rule propositions with single distribution such that they can be termed 1-way adaptive. In our system, all supports to propositions have interval...
Robust Model Following Control Design for Missile Roll Autopilot
Gezer, R. Berk; Kutay, Ali Türker (2014-07-11)
This paper presents a robust model following control method augmented with error integration and Luenberger observer for anti-air missile roll autopilot designed using optimal control laws. The design is shown to be robust to external disturbance, noisy measurements and sensor lags by frequency domain analysis. The regulation performance of the controller is presented by simulations.
