(AAS Rocky Mountain Section, 2018-02-05)Intelligent structures utilize distributed actuation, such as piezoelectric strain actuators, to control flexible structure vibration and motion. A new type of intelligent structure has been introduced recently for precision ...
Computationally-efficient modeling and optimization of strain-actuated solar arrays with tailored viscoelastic damping for spacecraft attitude control (2020-02-01)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 ...
(Dalian University of Technology Electronic & Audio-Visual Press, 2019-12-01)This article presents a utilization of viscoelastic damping to reduce control system complexity for strain-actuated solar array (SASA) based spacecraft attitude control systems (ACSs). SASA utilizes intelligent structures ...
