  • Publication number: 20210201155
    Abstract: An intelligent control method for a dynamic neural network-based variable cycle engine is provided. By adding a grey relation analysis method-based structure adjustment algorithm to the neural network training algorithm, the neural network structure is adjusted, a dynamic neural network controller is constructed, and thus the intelligent control of the variable cycle engine is realized. A dynamic neural network is trained through the grey relation analysis method-based network structure adjustment algorithm designed by the present invention, and an intelligent controller of the dynamic neural network-based variable cycle engine is constructed. Thus, the problem of coupling between nonlinear multiple variables caused by the increase of control variables of the variable cycle engine and the problem that the traditional control method relies too much on model accuracy are effectively solved.

  • Publication number: 20200063665
    Abstract: An aero-engine full flight envelope model adaptive modification method based on a deep learning algorithm. A dynamic parallel compensator based on a recursive neural network is adopted to compensate the error of the original nonlinear model within the full flight envelope under the condition without aero-engine performance deterioration. A modifier based on a genetic algorithm is also adopted to conduct adaptive adjustment on correction coefficients of health parameters to be modified in the original nonlinear component-level model. The health parameters to be modified are determined by a multi-attribute decision algorithm based on integrated evaluation. The sum of the modified nonlinear component-level model output and the compensator output is consistent with the aero-engine operation test output data. This provides powerful support for the design of aero-engine control systems and fault diagnosis systems.
