Abstract

This paper presents an approach for an integrated optimum design of structure and control system. A composite plate with segmented piezoelectric actuators is considered to design control system for vibration suppression. For the design of control system, a robust eigenstructure assignment scheme is adopted. Optimization technique is applied to minimize structural weight as well as control performance indices subject to constraints. The locations of the piez.oelectric actuators are considered as control design variables, and the thickness distribution of composite layers are considered as structural design variables. The integrated structural/control design is formulated as a constrained multi-objective optimization problem. The sequential linear programming method with move limits is used. The sensitivity analysis which is required in optimization process is performed for the eigenstructure assignment control scheme and performance indices with respect to the design parameters. Numerical example shows the capability in determining the optimal thickness distributions of the composite layer, and locations of the piezoelectric actuators. The results show the quite amount of reduction in structural weight as well as control performance indices through the optimization.
