Abstract / Description

This paper presents the dynamic modelling of a Vectored Thrust Aerial Vehicle (VTAV) powered by ducted fans, some of which can be vectored. First, a comprehensive nonlinear dynamic model of the system is developed. The model is then linearized around the hover equilibrium and the characteristics of the linearized model is analyzed. The performance of the linearized model is compared with the nonlinear model for various test conditions in order to identify the important parameters that need to be taken into consideration in developing a robust controller for the VTAV.
