Abstract

A hierarchical architecture is presented for the design of reliable control systems for high performance rotorcraft. The low-level controller is designed using probabilistic robust control approaches. By allowing different levels of risk under different flight conditions, the control system achieved the desired trade off between stability robustness and nominal performance. A high-level supervisory controller is proposed to monitor system response and switch between low-level robust controllers with different levels of risk and perfonnance.
