3D trajectory tracking control of quadrotor UAV with on-line disturbance compensation

Abstract : In this paper, we propose a revisited form of the so-called Model-Free Control (MFC). Herein, the MFC principle is employed to deal with the unknown part of the plant only (i.e. unmodeled dynamics, disturbances, etc.) and occurs beside an Interconnection and Damping Assignment-Passivity Based Control (IDA-PBC) strategy that is used instead of the PID structure as done in the classical MFC form. Using the proposed formulation, it is shown that we can significantly improve the performance of the control and its robustness level. This problem is studied in the case of Multi-Inputs Multi-Outputs (MIMO) system with an application to a small Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) vehicle where a stability analysis is also provided. The numerical simulations have shown satisfactory results where an in-depth discussion with respect to the control performance is highlighted by considering several scenarios and using several metrics.
