± ± ± Fall 2004 16.333 8–1 Basic Longitudinal Control Goal: analyze aircraft longitudinal dynamics to determine if the be- havior is acceptable, and if not, then modify it using feedback control. Note that we could (and will) work with the full dynamics model, but for now, let’s focus on the short period approximate model from lecture 7–5. x ˙ sp = A sp x sp + B sp δ e where δ e is the elevator input, and w Z w /m U 0 x sp = q , A sp = I 1 ( M w + M w ˙ Z w /m ) I 1 ( M q + M w ˙ U 0 ) yy yy Z δ e /m B sp = I 1 ( M δ e + M w ˙ Z δ e /m ) yy Add that θ ˙ = q , so = q Take the output as θ , input is δ e , then form the transfer function θ ( s ) 1 q ( s ) ² ³ = = 0 1 ( sI A sp ) 1 B sp δ e ( s ) e ( s ) As shown in the code, for the 747 (40Kft, M = 0 . 8 ) this reduces to: θ ( s ) 1 . 1569 s + 0 . 3435 = δ e ( s ) s ( s 2 + 0 . 7410 s + 0 . 9272) G θδ e ( s ) so that the dominant roots have a frequency of approximately 1 rad/sec and damping of about 0.4

Good target: frequency 3 rad/sec and damping of about 0 . 6 Problem is that the short period dynamics are no where near these numbers, so we must modify them.
