This paper compares two periodic control methods, the optimal H2 and the periodic static output feedback (POF), to reduce the helicopter rotor vibrations. Actively twisted blades with Macro-Fibre Composite (MFC) piezoelectric actuators are used. The design model is based on a simplified aerodynamic model and on a multi-body model of the Bo 105 isolated rotor with the original blades replaced by actively twisted ones. The performance of the two controllers in alleviating hub loads is verified with improved simulations based on a free-wake model.

Abstract

This paper compares two periodic control methods, the optimal H2 and the periodic static output feedback (POF), to reduce the helicopter rotor vibrations. Actively twisted blades with Macro-Fibre Composite (MFC) piezoelectric actuators are used. The design model is based on a simplified aerodynamic model and on a multi-body model of the Bo 105 isolated rotor with the original blades replaced by actively twisted ones. The performance of the two controllers in alleviating hub loads is verified with improved simulations based on a free-wake model.
