Keynote Speech 2: Enhance Upset Prediction and Recovery Training Motion Cueing Using Switched Model Predictive Control and Pilot Model

Speaker:
Dr. Dongsu Wu, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China.

Speech Abstract:
Upset prediction and recovery training (UPRT) has been required to perform by airline pilots in Level-D flight simulators. However, hexapod-type motion platform now used in simulators, which has limited workspace and motion capability, cannot faithfully reproduce the motion feeling pilots experience in real aircrafts under upset scenarios. In this paper, an enhanced motion cueing algorithm (MCA) for UPRT, which combined switched model predictive control and pilot model, is proposed. The UPRT scenario can be divided into five stages according to aircraft upset states. In order to ensure motion fidelity in all stages, a MCA based on model predictive control (MPC) is designed to switch between these stages with different performance indexes and constraints. The constraints of MPC were estimated by automatically executing the upset recovery process using a probabilistic pilot model. Simulation results showed that the proposed enhanced MCA has better motion simulation fidelity and also make better usage for the motion platform’s workspace than the classical MCA.

Keynote Speech 3: Research on Contingency Fuel Optimization Strategy of an Airline Based on Percentile Rank

Speaker:
Dr. Yu Qian, Civil aviation Flight University of China, China.

Speech Abstract:
In order to reduce the fuel cost and strengthen contingency fuel optimization, by using the historical data of fuel consumption of an airline. According to the requirements of the airline fuel data samples in the advisory circular and different safe threshold value of risk, the percentile rank is used to calculate the PBCF(Performance-Bassed Contingency Fuel) value of each route.These PBCF values get used to decide which route can apply for the use of 3% contingency fuel policy. The algorithm simulation result show that percentile rank can quickly calculate the PBCF value of each route in the tens of thousands of data and determine which route meets the use standard of the 3% contingency fuel policy. For routes that do not meet the 3% contingency fuel policy, fuel risk management need to be carried out. According to the situation of contingency fuel consumption, the flight plan should be optimized and the contingency fuel policy should be readjusted. Research can provide algorithmic support for airlines' contingency fuel policy optimization and supervision from CAAC.

Keynote Speech 4: Safety Resilience Research in Civil Aviation Industry

Speaker:
Dr. Qian Wu, Civil Aviation Management Institute of China

Speech Abstract:
Increasing uncertainty and harm of events triggered by the high-risk society scenario. In this speech, three sub-topics are proposed, Civil Aviation Operational Risk Situation, Civil Aviation Safety Resilience Capability Framework, and Application of Safety Resilience in Civil Aviation. At the same time, it also proposes a civil aviation meteorological disaster monitoring and early warning system based on fusion data method. The data processing layer of the system supports the data fusion and mining functions. The study shows that finding the correction between data helps identify key information quickly and accurately. The database includes the meteorological data, operation data, remote sensing data(RS data), and historical disaster data et. al. The data fusion module is used to effectively realize the comprehensive monitoring and early warning functions of the meteorological disaster monitoring and early warning system before, during and after the event, and improve the efficiency of the monitoring and early warning system from prevention, response and recovery.
