Abstract : The purpose of this report is to develop automatic aircraft flight control systems using the concept of Total Energy Control System (TECS) in the lateral directional axis for the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. Nonlinear simulation was originally developed from actual flight tests conducted by the U.S. Air Force and generated into a Fortran code. Lt James P. Dutton then took the flight data code and generated a SIMULINK file 10. Using the SIMULINK file a control law developed on the linearized model can then be tested on the nonlinear model. pg 11 swr
