The landing phase during a flight probably is the most dangerous part, as most of the accidents occur in this phase. A robust trajectory tracking controller is presented to autoland a civil aircraft subjected to severe wind disturbances to improve the aircraft’s safety. Firstly, the dynamic models of the aircraft and windshear are built. Secondly, a stable inversion (SI) based robust autolanding controller (SIRAC) is proposed. In this architecture, the SI algorithm is used to improve the output tracking precision, while the H synthesis is applied for enhancing robust stability against uncertainties caused by wind disturbances. Finally, two scenario simulations are carried out for the automatic landing control of a large civil aircraft. Significant performances on the system have been achieved without any disturbance. In addition to that, the proposed SIRAC can also track the desired autolanding trajectory with high precision, even under large wind condition. View Full-Text
