Actuators and sensors can be allocated in mechanical systems using the analysis of the closed-loop system, i.e., the positioning problem can be integrated with the active control problem, leading to a more general optimization problem. This problem is, however, difficult to solve. In the case of the candidate locations being discrete positions, the optimal solution can be found using a combinatorial method, which may become impractical because the number of available candidate locations…
