The design and assessment of a two degree of freedom gust load alleviation control system for a business jet aircraft is presented in this paper. The two degrees of freedom are a disturbance estimator to compute the incoming gusts as well as a feedback control law to mitigate the estimated disturbance to reduce the aircraft loads. To facilitate the estimator design, high order, infinite-dimensional models of the structural and aerodynamic aircraft dynamics are approximated by low order models using advanced model reduction techniques. For the robust disturbance estimator design an innovative approach relying on nullspace-based techniques together with non-linear optimization is proposed. Time delays, originating from the aerodynamics modeling, the discrete control loop, and the sensor and actuator dynamics, play a key role in the stability and performance assessment of a gust load alleviation controller. Thus, a novel analytical analysis method is presented to explicitly evaluate the influence of these time delays on the closed loop. Finally, the developed tool-chain is applied to a fly-by-wire business jet aircraft. The resulting two degrees of freedom gust load alleviation system is verified in a simulation campaign using a closed loop, non-linear simulator of the aircraft.
