Adaptive Structures for Large Precision Antennas
MetadataShow full item record
Optimal controller design approach for high precision pointing maneuver of flexible spacecraft by using adaptive structures is investigated in this paper. A parameter optimization technique is used to find out controller parameters minimizing a desired objective function which represents pointing performance of a flexible space structure. Multi-input and multi-output configuration used in this study also provides insight on the effectiveness of actuator location for improved performance.
