Submission Deadline: 31 July 2017
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Advanced Control and Health Management for Aircraft and its Propulsion System.
With the increased emphasis on aircraft safety, enhanced performance, reliability, affordability and operating life, advanced control and health management of aircraft and its propulsion system become more critical. Both aircraft control systems and propulsion control systems play an important role in enlarging the flight envelope and providing enhanced maneuvering capabilities. Moreover, integrated aircraft/propulsion control systems have been verified effective to further enhance aircraft performance with minimum pilot workload. The key enabling technologies are the increased efficiencies of components through active control, advanced diagnostics and prognostics integrated with intelligent control to enhance operational reliability and component life, and distributed control with smart sensors and actuators in an adaptive fault tolerant architecture. In order to catch up with the developments and requirements of aircraft, it is of great significance to investigate intelligent aircraft and propulsion control with advanced health management systems.
The primary objective of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to provide up-to-date discussions on technical trends and advanced methodologies in controls and health management of aircraft and its propulsion systems. Of particular interest, the papers in this Special Section should be devoted to the development of intelligent control technology used in aircraft and propulsion systems, fault diagnostics and prognostics, fault tolerant control, decentralized/distributed state estimation, and integrated aircraft/propulsion strategies. The contributions to this Special Section are expected to provide the latest results in advanced analysis, optimization, control and fault diagnostics and prognostics for aircraft and its propulsion systems. Topics to be covered in this special issue include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
