LMI-based model reduction for a vectored-thrust ducted fan

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This paper contains the first experimental application of model reduction methods developed for systems represented by a Linear Fractional Transformation (LFT) on a repeated scalar uncertainty structure. These methods provide for reduction of both the state order, and the uncertainty descriptions. LFT models of a vectored-thrust flight control experiment are reduced in order to make controller synthesis feasible. Recent Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) design techniques are used to synthesize the controllers.
