    One of the remarkable features of ATM systems from a control perspective is that there is no tolerance for system shutdown and start-up. The system literally must operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week. It is not feasible to simply shut down an old system and start up a new one. The economic and social costs of declaring that one day will be a day with no air traffic while the systems are s... View full abstract»

    This article proposes a novel evolutionary algorithm, called accelerated evolutionary programming (AEP), which improves evolutionary programming in terms of convergence speed and diversity. Comparison between the proposed algorithm and evolutionary programming is carried out for five widely used test functions to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. The proposed algorithm is applied t... View full abstract»

  • Phase-root locus and relative stability

    A new graphical tool called the phase-root locus is introduced. It is the dual of the conventional root locus, and indicates the motion of closed-loop poles in the s-plane as phase is added to the open-loop transfer function. The root locus/phase-root locus plots are shown to facilitate destabilization diagnosis, which may help determine what part of an unstable physical system requires modificati... View full abstract»

    Gives a simple and comprehensive review of anti-windup, bumpless and conditioned transfer techniques in the framework of the PID controller. We show that the most suitable anti-windup strategy for usual applications is the conditioning technique, using the notion of the realizable reference. The exception is the case in which the input limitations are too restrictive. In this case, we propose the ... View full abstract»

    The problem of applying direct dual control for positioning of a laboratory pilot-plant for the roll angle control of a vertical takeoff airplane by means of two propellers is described in the article. The bicriterial approach is applied for the synthesis of dual controllers, where two criteria are used which correspond to the two goals of dual control: control of the system output and exciting th...

  • Linear and neural network feedback for flight control decoupling

    Some experts are of the opinion that the task of flight training can become far less labor-intensive if the pilot can directly control each of the state variables of the aircraft individually. Yet complete decoupling of the aircraft as a nonlinear system is a formidable problem. Such a task requires accurate aircraft state information and rapid computing. The difficulties are compounded when the d... View full abstract»
