This paper considers a class of nonlinear output regulation problems for the rotational rigid body equations. The equations of motion for the rigid body are written in the natural SO(3) representation. The presented design consists of an observer and a certainty equivalence implementation of an independently designed state feedback law. The proposed solution is global and achieves almost global convergence in the closed loop


Dieser Beitrag beschäftigt sich mit einer Klasse von nichtlinearen Ausgangsregelungsproblemen für die Drehbewegung von Starrkörpern. Die Bewegungsgleichungen der Starrkörper werden in der SO(3) Darstellung betrachtet. Der Regler besteht aus einem Beobachter und einer davon unabhängig entworfenen Zustandsrückführung, in welcher die Beobachterzustände verwendet werden. Der Entwurf resultiert in einem geschlossenen Kreis mit garantierter Konvergenz für fast alle Anfangsbedingungen

Keywords : Output regulation; rigid body systems; separation principle

Schlagwörter : Ausgangsregelung; Starrkörper; Separationsprinzip
