Abstract

Nowadays miscellaneous simulation software platforms (such as MATLAB® with its numerous additional tool-boxes) are used during the research and development process connecting to newly invented robust nonlinear control methods and algorithms. However, it is still favorable to test the methods on real physical systems even in the early phases of the development, to prove their practical applicability in real world environment. Necessarily, these kinds of systems, serving as the test platforms for advanced control methods, has to be safe enough to tolerate the failures of the applied algorithms. Besides the safety questions such a test platform has to satisfy the contradictory requirements of constructional simplicity with cost effective flexible operation and the structural model complexity which can be manifested in form of known nonlinearities. In our paper a simple aeromechanical test-stand is presented for the aforementioned task consisting of a pivoting arm, which is moved by a propeller-motor generated lift force. The test platform is appropriate for testing various control methodologies in general.
