Linear Parameter Varying Control of an Agile Missile Model Based on the Induced L2-Norm Framework

This paper deals with the application of a linear parameter varying (LPV) controller synthesis for a modern air defense missile model. The model represents a challenging control problem due to the wide operation range. First, an LPV model of the missile is constructed via a novel approach of function substitution. Then, an LPV controller is designed based on the induced L2-norm framework. A mixed sensitivity weighting scheme is applied to specify the performance requirements. In order to fulfill various time and frequency domain criteria, a multiobjective optimization is used to tune the weighting functions of the mixed sensitivity weighting scheme. Finally, the robustness and performance of the controller is evaluated by nonlinear simulations.
