Economic Model-Predictive Control Strategies for Aircraft Deep-stall Recovery with Stability Guarantees

Abstract : Aircraft upset recovery requires aggressive control actions to handle highly nonlinear aircraft dynamics and critical state and input constraints. Model predictive control is a promising approach for returning the aircraft to the nominal flight envelope, even in the presence of altered dynamics or actuator limits; however, proving stability of such strategies requires careful algebraic or semi-algebraic analysis of both the system and the proposed control scheme, which can be challenging for realistic control systems. This paper develops economic model predictive strategies for recovery of a fixed-wing aircraft from deep-stall. We provide rigorous stability proofs using sum-of-squares programming and compare several economic, nonlinear, and linear model predictive controllers .
