Abstract

The paper presents the application of sliding-PID control to the design of robust flight control system for a hypersonic aircraft. The proposed controller uses an approach that combines the high-order PID controller with high-order sliding mode (HOSM) control. The PID uses high-order time-derivative (HOTD) function of the sliding mode variable while the HOSM uses the signum function of the HOTD function. HOTD is built using the relative degree nonlinear dynamics of multivariable systems driven by affine control inputs. A displacement autopilot is designed for pitch control of an air-breathing hypersonic vehicle model. Numerical simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed controller and shows its advantages as compared to the quasi-homogenous HOSM controller.
