Control Algorithm Design for Flight Simulators

C.J. Wu, E. Papadopoulos

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.
