Perturbation guidance for aerocruise with bounded control
Abstract
A perturbation guidance algorithm is developed for the constantaltitude portion of the orbitalplane change maneuver, called aerocruise. It is obtained by solving a linearquadratic regulator problem in terms of the perturbed state and control variables. The regulator problem with hard controlvariable constraints is then studied. For the twocontrolvariable case, the simulation results show that the boundedcontrol algorithm gives better performance than that obtained using a limiter for the case where control variables exceed the bounds.
