controllability

[kən‚trōl·ə′bil· əd·ē]
(aerospace engineering)
The quality of an aircraft or guided weapon which determines the ease of producing changes in flight direction or in altitude by operation of its controls.
(control systems)
Property of a system for which, given any initial state and any desired state, there exists a time interval and an input signal which brings the system from the initial state to the desired state during the time interval.

"Aviation authorities shall verify that the review of the aircraft control system related to flight controllability has been adequately addressed by the manufacturer before the release of the aircraft to operations," the report says.
Accordingly, the current study assessed whether a proactive coping style indirectly predicts lower threat appraisals of organization entry, higher challenge and controllability appraisals, and better mental health through FOC competence.
The minimal effort joysticks offer enhanced controllability and smoothness of working functions.
With deeper understanding of the controllability of complex networks [18-26], more scholars have begun to explore the ability to control complex networks through various indicators.
One of the most commonly applied qualitative control problems is null controllability. The system (1) is said to be null controllable if there exists an admissible control u(t) which steers an arbitrary state [x.sub.0] of the system into 0.
Controllability and observability are two fundamental concepts in the mathematical control theory.
These retain the look of the original, and are British-made, but feature added controllability and energy saving options.
The factors to determine MSIL in accordance with ISO/PAS 19695 are Exposure (E), Controllability (C) and Severity (S).
The controllability of each system is calculated, which allows us to show that the proposed control technique preserves the locally complete state controllability of the nonlinear controlled systems.
For the analytical approaches, the modal controllability index has been developed by the authors in [29] to find suitable location of TCSC for dampening interarea model of oscillations.
The MP or UMP methods can also be regarded as a state-space method via observability or controllability processing.
