Abstract

In aerospace engineering, there are several control systems affected by dry friction, which are characterized by low inertia and high working frequencies. For these systems, it is possible to use a downgraded, first-order dynamic model to represent their behaviour properly without run into numerical problems that would be harmful for the solution itself and would require high computational power to be solved, which means more weight, costs, and complexity. Yet, the effect of dry friction is still possible to be accounted for accurately using a new algorithm based on the Coulomb friction model applied to the downgraded, first-order dynamic model. In this paper, the degraded first-order model is applied to an electrohydraulic servomechanism with its PID control unit, hydraulic motor, electrohydraulic servo-valve, and applied load. These components represent a classic airplane actuator system. The downgraded model will be compared to the second-order one focusing on the pros and cons of the reduction process with a focus on the effect of dry friction for reversible and irreversible actuators.
