Computationally-efficient modeling and optimization of strain-actuated solar arrays with tailored viscoelastic damping for spacecraft attitude control (bibtex)
by Lee, Yong Hoon, Vedant and Allison, James T.
Abstract:
The recently-introduced strain-actuated solar array (SASA) spacecraft attitude control system (ACS) is expected to enable new levels of pointing precision for next-generation space observatories. Previous work has shown that tailored passive viscoelastic damping can help mitigate control system complexity by using passive damping to manage high-frequency vibration modes, while the active control system focuses on lower-frequency dynamics. Viscoelastic materials (VEMs) exhibit hysteretic behavior, requiring the use of computationally-expensive models based on integro-differential equations. A class of ap-proximations is presented here where convolution integrals are replaced with transfer func-tions to reduce computational expense significantly, supporting the application of control co-design optimization, while maintaining requisite accuracy. This approach eliminates time history integration needed for derivative function calculation, which opens up the possibil-ity of using general optimal control toolkits as well as advanced computationally-efficient methods for approximating system dynamics derivative functions.
