STABILITY ANALYSIS OF A THREE-TIME SCALE SINGULAR PERTURBATION CONTROL FOR A RADIO-CONTROL HELICOPTER ON A PLATFORM

Sergio Esteban, Francisco Gordillo, Javier Aracil

Abstract

A stability analysis is conducted on the proposed three-time scale singular perturbation control that is applied to a Radio/Control helicopter on a platform to regulate its vertical position. The control law proposed allows to achieve the desired altitude by either selecting a desired collective pitch angle or a desired angular velocity of the blades.
