Counsell, J.M. and Zaher, O.S. and Brindley, Joseph (2010) Auto-tuning for high performance autopilot design. In: AIAA guidance, navigation, & control conference et al (2010) online proceedings. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Reston, VA..
A novel auto-tuning method for the RIDE controller algorithm is presented. The RIDE controller is applied to a high performance aircraft model. The tuner utilises a constrained genetic algorithm to automate the tuning process. The results of the tuner are compared with that of another tuning method which utilises unconstrained optimisation so as to highlight the efficacy of constrained optimisation for this application. It is shown from the results that the constrained genetic algorithm optimisation scheme offers a highly effective tuning solution which can be used to attain safe and high performance control with the RIDE control algorithm.
