The characteristics of high-spin, high-load and wide-range of the dual-spin trajectory correction projectile are the main design difficulties of the fixed canard rudder roll control system. Permanent magnet alternating generator within the limited space, which integrates the battery and rudder, as well as its driving and measuring system is designed based on the high-spin and dual-spin characters. Meanwhile, based on the analysis of structure and operating principle, the triple closed-loop roll control system based on parallel processors is proposed, and then the signals under strong interference are processed, completing the roll attitude solution within the whole scope of trajectory. A semi-physical simulation system is built to complete control experiments with the air torque respectively provided by torque motor and wind tunnel. The wireless transmission module has also been equipped to realize real-time display of the measured roll data on the terminal computer. The responding time is less than 0.7 s and the control precision is within ± 5°. It’s proved that the designed generator provides needful torque for control and also power supply for whole electrical circuits, saving both space and cost. It is also demonstrated that the proposed triple closed-loop roll control system has good feasibility, reliability and value in engineering application.
