Simulation of Aircraft Control Using Bond Graph Techniques and Matlab/Simulink Software


to develop the nonlinear transformer that is required for particularimplementation of a complex aircraft control system. Aircraft longitudinal and lateralmotions are presented by studying and analyzing the aircraft dynamics. The equationsof motion are covered both forces and moments exerted on the aircraft using Newton'ssecond law with the assumption that at each equation the aircraft is regarded as a rigidbody. Six equations were classified, three equations for the longitudinal motion andthree equations for the lateral motion. The matrix for the differential equationsvectors for each force and moment were found with the aid of the computer aidedmodern bond graph program (CAMP-G) including symbolic manipulation.MATLAB/SIMULINK offered additional simulation capability.
