Adaptive Neural Network Control of Helicopters
In this paper, we propose robust adaptive neural network (NN) control for helicopter systems by using the Implicit Function Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem, which are useful tools for handling nonlinear nonaffine systems. We focus on single-input single-output (SISO) helicopter systems, which are exemplified by certain single-channel modes of operation, such as vertical flight and pitch regulation, and also by special conditions under which the multiple channels become decoupled. It is shown that under the proposed NN control, the output tracking error converges to a small neighbourhood of the origin, while all closed loop signals are Semi-Globally Uniformly Ultimately Bounded (SGUUB).
