  • Considering the parameter uncertainty and actuator failure of hypersonic vehicle during maneuvering, this paper proposes a state observer-based hypersonic vehicle fault-tolerant control (FTC) system design method. Because hypersonic vehicles are prone to failure during maneuvering, the state quantity cannot be measured. First, a state observer-based FTC control method is designed for the linear parameter-varying (LPV) model with parameter uncertainty and partial failure of the actuator. Then, the Lyapunov function is used to demonstrate the asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system. The performance index function proved that the system has robust stability under the disturbance condition. Subsequently, the linear matrix inequality (LMI) was used to solve the observer parameters and the corresponding gain matrix in the control system. The simulation results indicated that the designed controller can track the flight command signal stably and has strong robustness, which verified the effectiveness of the design controller.
