Author Affiliations +
This study focuses on the performance analysis of a hydraulic based Flight Motion Simulator (FMS). Since the motion of each axis of the FMS is controlled independently from other axes by an individual motion controller, a nonlinear model of one axis of an FMS was developed in order to analyse and specify a new control system for the FMS. The paper presents a performance analysis of different control structures of an FMS motion controller, and the advantages and disadvantages of each control structure. In addition, the paper details the requirement specification of a new FMS motion controller in order to achieve the FMS's optimum dynamic performance despite inherent nonlinearities, such as stiction and nonlinear orifice flow rate.
