Development of Mathematical Models, Simulating Vibration Control of Tracked Vehicle Weapon Dynamics
Keywords: Weapon dynamics, Backstepping, PID, LQR, Ride dynamics
AbstractFocuses upon development of the mathematical model, simulating the tracked vehicle weapon dynamics, integrated over a half car platform. Governing differential equations have been formulated for the weapon system using state space approach, simulating the elevation dynamics over a half vehicle chassis, and coded using Matlab. The elevation model of the weapon comprises 3 degrees of freedom, arising from the rotational dynamics of the drive, breech and muzzle, which has sequentially been coupled to the half car model. Thereafter, the backstepping, LQR and PID control techniques have been derived and incorporated into the state space matrix for the coupled dynamics model, in which the control parameters have been arrived at through various iterations. Comparative weapon dynamics response studies have been carried out between that obtained from the above control strategies and the passive model, over standard terrain conditions at specified speeds. The above study would form a very useful framework for implementation of alternate control strategies for weapon stabilisation in the full tracked vehicle.
