Analysis, Design and Implementation of Quadcopter Control System

KyawMyat Thua, Gavrilov Alexander Igorevich

Abstract— Quadcopters have generated considerable interest in both the control community due to their complex dynamics and military because of their advantages over regular aerial vehicles. This paper presents the analysis and design of differential equations of the quadcopter dynamics. The behaviour of the dynamic model is examined by simulating the flight of the quadcopter. Stabilization of the quadcopter is conducted by utilizing a PID controller. The PID controller is a simple control method which is easy to implement as the control method of the quadcopter. A simple control method is developed to control the trajectory and altitude of the flight.The proposed dynamical model which comprises gyroscopic effects and its control strategies can be source for future works.

Index Terms— Quadcopter, quadrotor, multicopter, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), design and implementation, feedback control, altitude control, analysis, modeling.
