ADAPTIVE CONTROL INVERSION AND ACTUATOR FAILURE COMPENSATION FOR UAVS
C. T. Raabe

Keywords: adaptive control, control inversion, fault tolerant control, failure tolerant control
For MIMO systems where it is desired to control n state rates with n actuators, a proposed method to: invert the control, simultaneously estimate and adapt to differences between real and design actuator effectiveness, and automatically switch control goals to attempt to maintain critical control upon detection of ineffective actuators.
