It has been proven that the properties of non-linearity, multi-disturbance, and time-variation are the main factors affecting the performance of the electromechanical actuator (EMA) for guided artillery rockets. In particular, its controller should have good dynamic characteristics and strong anti-disturbance features when the projectile is maneuvered at the end of its guidance. For these reasons, an active disturbance rejection controller (ADRC) was designed for a guided artillery rocket’s EMA with a ball screw drive. Compared to other control methods, it has been shown that the ADRC had a stronger disturbance rejection ability than PID, Fuzzy-PID, and BP-PID under the condition of 20% maximum control torque disturbance, and it also had a large stability margin and bandwidth.
