A Study of Sensory-based Control and Mechatronic Systems for Hybrid Rocket Operation
2005 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This Master’s Thesis concerns the control of a small-scale autonomous hybrid rocket. It is an investigation of how an onboard computer system can be used for performing the low-level activities required for controlling the rocket in flight, e.g. data acquisition, inertial navigation, propulsion and attitude control. The Thesis contains an in-depth study of the underlying physics of rocket motion as well as numerical simulations using MATLAB Simulink. The simulations indicate that even complex systems such as rocket attitude control can be performed using simple control principles. The thesis also explains how to implement the required software elements using the QNX real-time operating system and the C programming language.
