Abstract : In this work, the iterative learning model predictive control approaches are presented to resolve the control problem of trajectory based aircraft operation with time-of-arrival constraint. Firstly, we formulated this problem as being an output tracking issue with along-track wind disturbance. Next, P-type point-to-point iterative learning control algorithms are designed to overcome the influence of repetitive along-track wind. In addition, a point-to-point iterative learning model predictive control algorithm with a variable prediction step is also designed to eliminate the interference of non-repetitive gusts on the air route. Finally, numerical simulations are provided to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
