Nonlinear MPC and MHE for Mechanical Multi-Body Systems with Application to Fast Tethered Airplanes

Abstract : Mechanical applications often require a high control frequency to cope with fast dynamics. The control frequency of a nonlinear model predictive controller depends strongly on the symbolic complexity of the equations modeling the system. The symbolic complexity of the model equations for multi-body mechanical systems can often be dramatically reduced by using representations based on non-minimal coordinates, which result in index-3 differential-algebraic equations (DAEs). This paper proposes a general procedure to efficiently treat multi-body mechanical systems in the context of real-time NMPC, using non-minimal coordinate representations.
