Title: Autopilot Design For Fixed Wing Uav
Author: Abdallah, Huda Elniema Abdelrahman
Abstract: Unmanned aerial systems have been widely used for variety of military and civilian applications over the past few years. Some of these applications require accurate guidance and control. Consequently, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) guidance and control attracted many researchers in both control theory and aerospace engineering. Fixed wings, as a particular type of UAV, are considered to have one of the most efficient aerodynamic structures. The focus of this thesis is on control design for both lateral and longitudinal for a UAV system. The platform understudy is a fixed wing developed and modeled by University of Minnesota. The novel approach suggested in this thesis is to use a successive loop closure to obtain the gains for the PID controller which is implemented in MATLAB Simulink. The Software in the Loop Simulation (SIL_Sim) is built by adding actuator and sensor dynamics that can help prove or test the software. The performance of the designed controller is compared to the controller of University of Minnesota. It was found that the performance of the designed controller is satisfactory in term of time analysis characteristics.
