Abstract:
This paper is devoted to a method of creating of the automated ballonet system for pressure control inside an airship envelope. Along with the study of the effects of the positional control system parameters, the authors develop novel control scheme. It is based on a new hybrid controller, which combines positional approach to forming the output control signal with a contour of continuous correction of input signal, which defines the pressure drop on the surface of the envelope as a function of the flight altitude. This approach allows reducing the effect of self-oscillations of airship envelope internal pressure on the flight altitude. In order to prove the new approach the mathematical model is being obtained. The results of the derivation and simulations of the control system operation are presented in this paper.
