Modeling and Characterization of Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this research aims to develop efficient methods to verify and validate linear time-invariant models derived from nonlinear time-variant systems. The parametric model will be compared to a non-parametric model of a small UAS (obtained from flight test data) to test for accuracy. If the parametric model is not as accurate as the non-parametric flight test model, then the parametric model will be tweaked to match the non-parametric model as closely as possible. A proper understanding of aircraft dynamical modeling is necessary to ensure proper adjustment of the model. In order for the parametric model to be accurate, the model must undergo validation and verification. The physics of the plane should be validated. In other words, does the plane adhere to physical laws in flight? Once the model is validated, it must be verified. In order to deal with the nonlinearity of the problem, genetic algorithms will be used to match the eigenvalues of the parametric and non-parametric models as closely as possible.
