Aircraft System Identification: Theory And Practice by Vladislav Klein, Eugene A. Morelli

By Vladislav Klein, Eugene A. Morelli

This ebook offers a finished review of either the theoretical underpinnings and the sensible program of airplane modeling according to experimental info - sometimes called airplane process id. a lot of the fabric offered comes from the authors' personal broad study and educating actions on the NASA Langley learn middle and relies on actual global functions of method identity to plane. The ebook makes use of genuine flight try out and wind tunnel info for case experiences and examples, and may be a beneficial source for researchers and practising engineers, in addition to a textbook for postgraduate and senior-level classes. All points of the procedure id challenge - together with their interdependency - are lined: version postulation, test layout, instrumentation, information compatibility research, version constitution selection, kingdom and parameter estimation, and version validation. The tools mentioned are used regularly for possibility aid in the course of flight envelope enlargement of latest airplane or transformed configurations, comparability with wind tunnel attempt effects and analytic equipment corresponding to computational fluid dynamics (CFD), regulate legislation layout and refinement, dynamic research, simulation, flying characteristics tests, twist of fate investigations, and different projects. The booklet contains SIDPAC (System id courses for AirCraft), a software program toolbox written in MATLAB[registered], that implements many tools mentioned within the textual content and will be utilized to modeling difficulties of curiosity to the reader.

Example text

Currently, two methods—equation-error and output-error—are used for most aircraft parameter estimation. The equation-error method is based on linear regression using the ordinary least-squares principle. The unknown aerodynamic parameters are estimated by minimizing the sum of squared differences between measured and modeled aerodynamic forces and moments. Linear regression constitutes a linear estimation problem, meaning that the model output is linearly dependent on the model parameters. This simplifies the optimization required to find parameter estimates to the solution of an overdetermined set of linear equations, which can be found using well-known techniques from linear algebra.

ELEMENTS OF SYSTEM THEORY 23 Theoretically, either the equation-error or the output-error method can be a maximum likelihood estimator, which means that the cost function optimization used for computing the unknown parameters is equivalent to maximizing the probability density of the outcome from the experiment. In addition, both equation-error and output-error parameter estimation can be considered special cases of a more general approach based on Bayes’s rule. These methods will be addressed in Chapters 4, 5, and 6.
