In active disturbance rejection controller (ADRC) design, extended state observers (ESO) always require a higher bandwidth to observe state variables faster. This paper replaces original ESO by deadbeat observer and makes the fastest observation speed. Take second order plant as an example, the discrete ADRC based on deadbeat observer equivalent complex control model is given, and the open-loop compensator works like lead corrector. Simulation results verified the fastest observation speed and the controller bandwidth should be less than the reciprocal of sampling time. The ADRC control based on deadbeat observer process is easier as the ESO bandwidth design is no longer needed. ©, 2015, South China University of Technology. All right reserved.

As the primary electric power source for large and medium-scale More Electric Aircraft (MEA), Wide variable Frequency (WF) AC electric power system (EPS) is characterized by possible fast and wide range of frequency variations and highly nonlinear dynamics introduced by power electronic converters. Fast and precise responding to parameter variations and disturbances for the control system is crucial for safe and high quality operation of the EPS. In this paper, a digital method for calculation of the magnitude of the fundamental waveform and harmonics for aircraft WF EPS is presented. The method combines the utilization of variable sample interval Recursive Discrete Fourier Transform (RDFT) and some validated engineering practices, possessing properties such as flexibility and real-time characteristics. Mathematical analysis is performed to show the effectiveness and simulation with MATLAB is also carried out to further demonstrate the performance. © 2016 IEEE.

An improved eigenstructure assignment algorithm with output feedback is presented to solve the problem that the general eigenstructure assignment with output feedback can't completely guarantee the stability of the closed-loop system. In this improved algorithm, the quadratic performance index is introduced to convert the problem of the closed-loop stability into a linear quadratic optimal control problem, which ensures the stability of the closed-loop system. Taking into account that the closed-loop system designed by eigenstructure assignment has a poor robustness, the condition for ensuring the system robustness is given to solve the robust problem of the closed-loop system. Finally, simulation results on a flying wing aircraft show the effectiveness of the eigenstructure assignment proposed. © 2016, Editorial Office of Control and Decision. All right reserved.

Electroactive shape-memory hydro-epoxy/carbon black composites are investigated in this study. The thermomechanical and the shape-memory properties of these composites are characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis and U-type shape-memory tests. These results indicate that the glass transition temperature (T g) of the composites decreases first and then increases slightly as the carbon black content increases. The storage modulus at high temperatures increases as the carbon black content increases. The percolation threshold of the electroactive shape-memory hydro-epoxy composite is lower than that for many other composites. Because of the low percolation threshold, the electroactive shape-memory hydro-epoxy composite exhibits excellent shape-memory property. The sample filled with 1.9 wt% carbon black can recover nearly 100% of its original shape in only a few minutes under an applied voltage of 200 V. © 2013 The Society of Polymer Science, Japan (SPSJ) All rights reserved.

During dynamic similitude model experiments, it is generally difficult to assure the damping ratio of scale model is same with its original structure. This problem results in that the measured dynamic response of scaled model with damping errors cannot be used directly to predict the original structure's response. An updating method of the time history response for dynamic similitude models with dissimilar damping ratios is proposed to solve the problem. It is assumed that the practical and ideal scaled models' damping can be expressed as classical damping model and then the updating equations are deduced from the relationship between the practical and ideal scaled models' vibration equations. These updating equations show that the calculation of the updating value can be transformed as a dynamic response solution of the ideal scale model forced by an equivalent additional exciting force. Considering that the response measurement points in the realistic experiment are usually limited, a model reduced order method is proposed to reconstruct the responses of those non-measured points. The proposed updating method just need to know modal damping ratios, mass and stiffuess matrixes of the original structure and practical scaled model, and these conditions are easy to be satisfied. Finally, this updating method is used to update the dynamic response of a scaled model of fighter's wing beam structure. Updating results show that the after-updated displacement power spectrum density and root mean square values are consistent with practical measured responses, which verifies the feasibility and validity of the proposed updating method.

Morphing aircraft is widely considered as an revolution for designing and operating aero-vehicles and has been hot researched from the last decade. However, most types of morphing aircraft are not brand new concepts, and some even have a history of more than 90 years. As active technologies developing dramatically, many talented ideas of morphing aircraft will be realized in the 21st century and will be applied to different types of aircraft. The paper briefly reviews the evolutionary history of three kinds of typical morphing aircraft, which shows most modern morphing aicraft concepts are originated from existing aircraft. The paper also discusses the relationship of morphing aircraft and UAVs, which reveals that UAV may be a suitable platform to demonstrate relevant morphing technologies but it is not the only potential of morphing aircraft. On the basis of analyzing the relationship between morphing concepts and aircraft types, some application examples of morphing aircraft are illustrated.

The objective of this work is to characterize the effect of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on the thermomechanical, electrical and shape-memory properties of hydro-epoxy/carbon black (CB) composite. The shape-memory hydro-epoxy composite is fabricated by adding MWCNTs and CB into shape-memory hydro-epoxy resin. The total amount of the fillers fixed at 1.9wt%, five different composites are produced by varying the amount of MWCNTs between 0 and 0.8wt% and the amount of CB between 1.1 and 1.9wt%. The thermomechanical properties and shape-memory performance of the composites are studied. These results indicate that the glass transition temperature (Tg) and the storage modulus of the composites increases at first and then decreases as MWCNTs content increases. The shape recovery time decreases at first and then increases slightly as MWCNTs content increases. The composite presents good shape-memory behavior, and the shape recovery ratio is around 100%. Due to the synergic effect of CB and MWCNTs, the volume electrical resistivity of the composite could decrease by adding a small amount of MWCNTs. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd.

Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) have the capacity to return large strains by external stimuli. Among various SMPs, shape-memory epoxy has received considerable attention because of its superior mechanical and thermal properties as well as excellent shape-memory performance. In this study, short glass fibre-reinforced shape-memory hydro-epoxy composites are developed to improve further the mechanical property of shape-memory epoxy resin. The thermomechanical and shape-memory properties of the developed composite materials are investigated by dynamic mechanical analysis, bend test and shape recovery test. The results indicate that the glass modulus and bend strength of the developed composite materials initially increase and then slightly decrease with increasing short glass fibre content. The glass transition temperature of the developed composite materials does not change with increasing short glass fibre. When the short glass fibre content is less than 4.5 wt.%, full recovery can be observed after only several minutes at different temperatures. The shape-memory property of the composite materials is not affected greatly. However, when the short glass fibre content is more than 4.5 wt.%, the material would be destroyed after deformation. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
