Abstract:

This report summarizes new methods for flexible structures dynamic analysis, system identification, and maneuver controls. New control design methods are introduced for considering several competing performance measures simultaneously. A new attitude control method using single gimbal control moment gyros is introduced. New results and insights on singularity avoidance are presented. A method is given for simultaneous optimization of structural design parameters and feedback controller. Keywords include Active Control, Structural Analysis, spacecraft Maneuvers, Robust control.
