Optimal Design and Control of Smart Space Structures: A Memetic Evolution Approach
Jan.-Feb. 2014 (vol. 29 no. 1)
pp. 40-46

To reach global optimal performance, here the authors propose a new design approach that offers concurrent design for smart space structures. In this approach, the quantity and placement of sensors/actuators and parameters of controllers are simultaneously optimized by a memetic evolution algorithm. A solar array smart structure has been used for computational experiments and the corresponding results indicate that the proposed concurrent design can obtain better performance than the sequential one.
