Contributor Voskuijl, M. (mentor) Faculty Aerospace Engineering Department Flight Performance and Propulsion Date 2016-06-28 Abstract Force feedback in helicopters can improve the performance of the pilot, decrease direct maintenance costs and increase the safety of every flight. Traditional force feedback is done with the use of a force sensor. In this thesis the use of a position based, feedforward control loop to achieve the same purpose is investigated. The limits of stability and passivity of the control loop are shown to be highly dependent on the characteristics of the digital control loop and the mechanical aspects of the flight control kinematics. Additionally it is researched whether the control loop can be used for autopilot control and if a manual intervention by the pilot can be detected.
