Aircraft Parameter identification Dynamic modeling Control oriented model Motion parameters


The paper presents the combined modeling of the full-scale aircraft. Here theoretical model of the real motorglider is developed and linearised, while the parameters are es timated also through identification of measured data. The transfer functions for roll and pitch behaviour obtained the oretically and experimentally are compared and validated. It came out that the obtained models match real vehicle be haviour satisfactorily, thus enabling the designers to test-fly the aircraft in a virtual environment already during the de velopment phase with a large degree of certainty. This rep resents significant time and cost savings and may as well avoid expensive prototype modifications that are otherwise often necessary.
