Mathematical model and optimization of helicopter vertical takeoff considering operational conditions and aerodynamic damping

Abstract


A mathematical model of helicopter vertical takeoff was created. The model takes into account operating conditions and individual performance capabilities of a given helicopter. An optimization technique based on a genetic algorithm was introduced. The influence of mass, initial height and outside air temperature on the parameters of the optimal control law in case of vertical takeoff of Mi-8MT helicopter was estimated.
