Helicopter flight control systems can be successfully tuned using sensitivity functions. Systematic adjustments to control system parameters are made on the basis of responses measured from the system to be tuned. The importance of the method lies in its ability to optimize controllers in the presence of unmodelled dynamics, such as those of the rotor. The adjustment procedure will yield a coupled system whose dynamics are close to those of a reference model as the plant dynamics will allow.
