Abstract:

Flexible smart structures are large mechanical structures with applications in which specific performance characteristics are desired in the presence of parameter variations and disturbances. These structures tend to have severe controller effort restrictions and tightly spaced lightly damped modes. When designing controllers for smart structures, H2 controllers are well suited for control effort restrictions and closed loop performance specifications while H infinite controller are better suited for modeling uncertainties. This paper examines the application of 112H infinity controller design methodologies to smart structures.
