This paper presents several robust control designs for a MIMO morphing airfoil concept. A linear aeroelastic model of the morphing wing is utilized to design an H∞ controller and a two degree of freedom H∞ loop shaping controller that track commanded lift and roll moments. These methodologies are developed, along with the robustness conditions for input multiplicative, and real parametric uncertainty in ωn and ςn. The robustness of each of these controllers is then evaluated using these conditions and the structured singular value (SSV). Comments and discussion on these control methodologies are then drawn presented.
