Research about actuator and sensor positioning is important to obtain smart structures that can achieve better performance, and studies concerning controller design techniques are also important. In some studies on smart structures, the positioning of sensors and actuators are defined by some physical criteria and, thereafter, the controller is designed to satisfy some requirements of the controlled system. However, the optimal number and placement of sensors and actuators can also be obtained… 

Discrete optimization for positioning of actuators and sensors in vibration control using the simulated annealing method

The main contribution of this paper is to devise a systematic procedure based on the simulated annealing method to allocate active elements in discrete places, simultaneously with the controller design problem for multiple-input and multiple-output systems.

An optimal sensor/actuator placement method for flexible structures considering spatially varying disturbances

Results show that magnitude of vibrations is reduced and decays faster after the optimization, which indicates that the proposed method markedly improves control performance when spatially varying disturbances exist.

Genetic algorithm-based integrated optimization of active control systems for civil structures subjected to random seismic excitations

Two sets of probabilistic criteria for stochastic optimal control of structures are developed, on the basis of peak and root-mean-square values of objective quantities, to solve the integrated optimization problem for active control systems of civil structures under random seismic excitations.
