- In this study, a flight control design strategy based on incremental nonlinear dynamic inversion (INDI) and smoothing algorithm is presented. The INDI is an enhanced version of the nonlinear dynamic inversion technique with a better robust performance. It reduces the aircraft model dependence via the feedback information of the state derivative, that is, angular acceleration for the aircraft attitude motion (or angular velocity related to the wind axis parameters). However, the state derivatives cannot always be obtained by direct measurement, thus they need to be estimated on-line. Moreover, taking into account that INDI requires one-step delay of state derivative and the fact that the inertial measurement unit (IMU) operates faster than the flight control computer (FCC), there will be additional information that can be used to improve the estimation. Therefore, a fixed-lag smoothing algorithm based on a discrete Kalman filter is proposed for angular velocity and angular acceleration estimation. The smoother utilizes the state variable from the sensor measurement and thus dealing with noise and delay.
