    Abstract

    A Improved Control System For A Forced-Oscillation Rig For Measurement Of Pitch/Yaw Damping Derivatives In The NAL 1 .2m Derivatives Wind Tunnel Has Bee Designed And Developed. The Basic Principles Of The System Are Similar To Those Of A Existing Control System Developed For The Same Forced-Oscillation Rig. The Present System In Corporate Certain Features Such As The Use Of Digital Techniques For Fine Tuning And Automatic Switching Of Phase Tracking Control From Closed-Loop To Open-Loop Mode Operation . These Features Facilitate Testing. Even When The Model Is Subject, To Relatively Large Random Disturbances Due Either To Large Flow U Steadiness A D/Or Separated Flow Over Model Occurring At High Incidences. Performance Of The Control System Was Evaluated Initially In Bench Tests .The System Was Later Successfully Employed For Pitch-Damping Measurements at Mach Numbers up To 3 .T3 In The NAL 1 .2 Transonic Blowdown Tunnel.
