A robust aeroservoelastic stability analysis considering frequency-domain aerodynamic uncertainty is utilized for robust control law design for flutter suppression of a flexible wing. The problem of stabilizing the wing in flutter using a minimum amount of control power is posed. For this purpose, numerical optimization is used to minimize the norm of a simple low-order controller subject to constraints on robust closed-loop stability. Robust stability is enforced in the optimization problem by posing constraints on the upper bounds on structured singular values and eigenvalues obtained from a linear stability analysis. The resulting controller is synthesized using gain scheduling, and robust wing flutter suppression is demonstrated in wind-tunnel testing.
