Integration of Structure and Control Using an Evolutionary Approach: An Application to the Optimal Concurrent Design of a CVT


In this paper, a concurrent design methodology to formulate the mechatronic design problem is presented. The methology proposes to state the mechatronic design problem as a dynamic optimization problem. In order to explain the methodology, the concurrent design of pinion–rack continuously variable transmission (CVT) is carried out. Two optimization… (More)
