A LQG regulator for the angular motion of the rotor at a tuned gyroscope
Abstract
A solution is presented for the rotor axis angular motion problem of a tuned gyro with two degrees of freedom. This problem is approached using the tools of optimal control theory supposing a linear, quadratic and Gaussian nature for it. The motivation for this problem results from the fact that its solution (computation of controller torques) is directly proportional to gyro input angular rates providing a form to estimate them. In the plant simulation and controller design, a special software, KEDDC, implemented on Communication Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada, was used.
