How to get to us
Dynamics and control in aeronautics is a key area of research and application within the department Control Design Engineering. We are specialists in multi-disciplinary design of flight control laws, as well as in development of multi-disciplinary models for aircraft flight dynamics and aircraft on-board systems. We apply, and continuously improve, an integrated flight control laws design process that is supported by methods and tools developed in our department. We further perform modelling and model integration of on-board aircraft systems, aiming at reduction of peak power loads and overall power consumption by systems on-board the aircraft.
Flight Dynamic and Control
Flight control laws (FCLs) form the core of the aircraft electronic flight control system (EFCS) software. So-called “primary flight control laws” provide all functions to control the aircraft flight dynamics, either manually or automatically. Secondary control laws provide add-on functionality such as active damping of airframe structural dynamics, and active reduction of loads on the airframe during manoeuvring or turbulence and gusts.
