Abstract

In this paper we present an extension of the L1 adaptive control architecture to nonlinear systems in the presence of significant uncertain cross-coupling. To evaluate the L1 adaptive controller, we take advantage of the flexible research environment with rapid prototyping and testing of control laws in the Airborne Subscale Transport Aircraft Research system at the NASA Langley Research Center. We apply the L1 adaptive control laws to the subscale turbine powered Generic Transport Model. The presented results are based on the full nonlinear simulation of the Generic Transport Model and include the preliminary piloted evaluation results.
