Parametric modelling and dynamic characterization of a two-degree-of-freedom twin-rotor multi-input multi-output system

By S.M. Ahmad, A.J. Chipperfield and M.O. Tokhi


A mathematical model for the dynamic characterization of a two-degree-of-freedom (2 DOF) twin-rotor multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system (TRMS) in hover is extracted using a black box system identification technique. The behaviour of the TRMS, in certain aspects, resembles that of a helicopter, with a significant cross-coupling between longitudinal and lateral directional motions. Hence, it is an interesting identification and control problem. Identification for a 2 DOF, rigid-body, discrete-time linear model is presented in detail. The extracted model has a good degree of prediction capability. The modelling approach presented is suitable for complex new-generation air vehicles
