Application of Neural Network on Flight Control

Mohammad Reza Khosravani

Abstract—Over the last three decades, adaptive control has evolved as a powerful methodology for designing feedback controller of nonlinear systems. Most of the studies assume that the system nonlinearities are known a prior, which is generally not applicable in the real world. To overcome this drawback, from twenty years ago, there has been a tremendous amount of activity in applying Neural Networks for adaptive control. With their powerful ability to approximate nonlinear functions, neuro-controllers can implement the expected objectives by canceling or learning the unknown nonlinearities of the system to be cancelled. Neural Networks are specially suitable for the adaptive flight control applications where system dynamics are dominated by the unknown nonlinearities.

Index Terms—Control, flight, neural network.
