Abstract

The idea in this work is to explore the nonlinear control techniques in the context of application to the problem of temperature regulation of an aeronautical system. More specifically, the performances of the controllers designed using feedback linearization, sliding modes and the concept of flatness are compared to that achieved by a PID controller. A detailed discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of each technique is provided based on simulation results using a model with the structure validated with real experimental data and with realistic parameter values.
