Optimal design and control of smart space structures are computational intensive. In traditional design methods, numbers of sensors and actuators required, their positions, and parameters of controllers are selected and optimized sequentially. Hence, only local optimality can be achieved by these methods. In order to reach the global optimal performance, a new approach is proposed in this article that will implement the 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 evolutionary 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.
