Automatic Flight Control Systems Paperback / softback

Part of the Synthesis Lectures on Mechanical Engineering series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book provides readers with a design approach to the automatic flight control systems (AFCS). The AFCS is the primary on-board tool for long flight operations, and is the foundation for the airspace modernization initiatives.

In this text, AFCS and autopilot are employed interchangeably.

It presents fundamentals of AFCS/autopilot, including primary subsystems, dynamic modeling, AFCS categories/functions/modes, servos/actuators, measurement devices, requirements, functional block diagrams, design techniques, and control laws.The book consists of six chapters.

The first two chapters cover the fundamentals of AFCS and closed-loop control systems in manned and unmanned aircraft.

The last four chapters present features of Attitude control systems (Hold functions), Flight path control systems (Navigation functions), Stability augmentation systems, and Command augmentation systems, respectively.
