This numerical study presents a detailed optimal control design based on the general finite element approach for the integrated design of a structure and its control system. Linear quadratic (LQ) theory with output feedback is considered on the basis of the state space model of the system. Three-dimensional finite elements are used to model the smart(More)
— In this paper, we consider a formation keeping problem for a satellite formation flying system. The relative motion dynamics is designed with polytopic uncertainties by considering elliptical reference orbit, noncoplarnar formation and unknown angular rate, angular acceleration within some boundary. We propose a composite nonlinear feedback control law(More)
In this paper, we develop iterative learning control (ILC) algorithms when the final states of previous iteration are equal to the initial states of current iteration, which is called state alignment. When a new iteration begins along continuous time domain without stopping for a reset, the typical ILC algorithm is modified using dirac-delta function such(More)
This paper consider a standard consensus algorithm under output saturations. In the presence of output saturations, global consensus can not be realized due to the existence of stable, unachievable equilibrium points for the consensus. Therefore, this paper investigates necessary and sufficient initial conditions for the achievement of consensus, that is an(More)
The finite-element method of analysis is unrestricted by size considerations and is well suited for the study of very small structures such as MEMS devices embedded in structures. This paper presents the numerical approach and results for a silicon-based micro-flow sensor for pulsed-flow sensing. The new approach presented here is the treatment of transient(More)
