Title (EN) CONTROL SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATIC FLIGHT IN WINDSHEAR CONDITIONS
(FR) SYSTEME DE COMMANDE DE VOL AUTOMATIQUE DANS DES CONDITIONS DE CISAILLEMENT DU VENT
Abstract:
(EN) A flight control system is configured for controlling the flight of an aircraft (1 1) through windshear conditions. The system has means for measuring values of selected flight performance states of the aircraft (11) and a control system for operating flight control devices on the aircraft (11). A windshear detection system located on the aircraft uses at least some of the measurement values of the selected flight performance states to calculate a gust average during flight for comparison to pre-determined values in a table for determining whether windshear conditions exist. The control syslsm then operates at least some of the flight control devices in response to an output of the windshear detection system.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de commande de vol configuré pour contrôler le vol d'un aéronef dans des conditions de cisaillement du vent. Le système possède un dispositif pour mesurer des valeurs d'états de performances sélectionnés du vol de l'aéronef et un système de commande pour activer les dispositifs de commande du vol placés sur l'aéronef. Un système de détection de cisaillement du vent placé sur l'aéronef utilise certaines des valeurs mesurées des états de performance sélectionnés du vol pour calculer une moyenne des rafales au cours du vol et effectuer une comparaison avec des valeurs prédéfinies dans un tableau pour déterminer s'il existe des conditions de cisaillement du vent. Le système de commande active ensuite certains des dispositifs de commande de vol en réponse à une sortie du système de détection de cisaillement du vent.
