Abstract
In this paper, a small seamless morphing wing aircraft of MTOW=51 kg is investigated. The leading edge (LE) and trailing edge (TE) control surfaces are positioned in the wing section in span wise. Based on the studying results of aeroelastic wing characteristics, the controller should be designed depending on the flight speed. Compared with a wing of rigid hinged aileron, the morphing wing produces the rolling moment by deflecting the flexible TE and LE surfaces. An iteration method of pseudo-inverse allocation and quadratic programming allocation within the constraints of actuators have be investigated to solve the nonlinear control allocation caused by the aerodynamics of the effectors. The simulation results will show that the control method based on control allocation can achieve the control target.
