This paper presents an active flutter suppression design using linear parameter-varying (LPV) control method for a nonlinear aeroservoelastic model that captures wing-section stall flutter. The loss-of-effectiveness fault is considered for the control surface. The resulting model is a function of speed as well as effectiveness factor of the control surface. These two parameters are treated as the varying parameters to formulate an LPV representation of the wing-section model using Jacobian linearization. An H2 gain-scheduled controller based on a parameter-dependent Lyapunov function is designed for the LPV system. The simulation shows that it can suppress limit cycle oscillations over a range of speed and work under a certain range of control surface effectiveness loss.
