Large aircraft flight simulators consist of a Stewart platform mechanism
powered by six hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders are commanded to move
so that the platform base (cockpit) emulates the motion of a true aircraft
under pilot commands. However, current control systems do not take into
account inertia forces and hydraulic actuation dynamics, thus reducing
system capabilities. In this project, we aim to redesign cylinder controllers
so that the working envelope of such a simulator is extended.
