(Signature) Department of ILl^cLoj n eo The University of British Columbia Vancouver, Canada Date DE-6 (2/88) Abstract A relatively general formulation for studying dynamics and control of a large class of systems, characterized by interconnected rigid bodies, beam and plate type structural members forming a tree topology with two level of branching, is developed using the Lagrangian procedure. The governing equations are discretized using two fundamentally different approachs of system and component modes synthesis. Versatility of the formu- lation is demonstrated, through its application to two systems of contemporary interest, in the presence of nonlinear control: (i) Space station based, two-arm mobile, flexible manipulator; (ii) NASA proposed configuration involving a flexible slewing arm abode a flexible truss with a rigid antenna. Relative merit of the two discretization procedures is assessed over a range of system parameters through comparison of the controlled and uncontrolled responses. Results suggest that the component mode synthesis, though relatively easy to implement, can lead to inaccurate response unless the boundary con- ditions are modeled precisely. Unfortunately, this is seldom possible, particularly with complex systems of current interest. On the other hand, discretization through system modes, though precise, would require frequent updating leading to an increase in the computational time. The investigation represents an original contribution of far-reaching consequence to the field. Such a planned approach to assess discretization methodologies with reference to space based system has not be reported in open literature.

Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Preliminary Remarks The Unite States, together with Canada, Japan and the European Space Agency, has committed itself to the establishment of a space station by the turn of this century. It will be used for scientific exploration, satellite launch and maintenance, manufacture of prod- ucts in the favourable microgravity environment, the Earth-oriented applied technologies and numerous other applications. The primary design requirement for the space station is to provide a versatile, ex- pandable, permanent, manned facility for the tasks mentioned above. It will contain laboratories for a wide range of fundamental investigations. Furthermore, the space sta- tion will serve as a platform for satellite launch and repair; as well as assembly of space structures which may be too large, in terms of size and weight, to transport by the space shuttle or other launch vehicles available today. One of the space station configurations considered by NASA is shown in Figure ( 1.1). It had a 150m long main truss (power boom), aligned with the orbit normal with eight photovoltaic arrays parallel to the local vertical, each extending to thirty-three meters and together generating 75 kW of power. The gimbaled solar array blankets provide power at any relative alignment of the space station with respect to the Sun, and heat rejection is achieved by nonrotating radiators. Habitation, laboratory and logistics mod- ules are located near the geometric center of the power-boom. The geometry of the space 1 Chapter 1. INTRODUCTION^ 2 station has already gone through several modifications and, at present, its configuration is undergoing further revision. However, one thing is clear: the space station will be a gigantic and highly flexible structure. It will be the largest platform (more than 100m in length) ever assembled in space. Such a gigantic, massive structure, however, cannot be carried in its entirety to the operational orbit. It will have to be constructed in space by integration of hardware delivered by a number of flights of the space shuttle. For instance, the the first space shuttle flight will deliver four truss bays of the power-boom, two of which are outboard of the articulating alpha joint, which allows the photovoltaic solar arrays to track the Sun. The hardware delivered will also include a radiator, two Reaction Control System (RCS) modules, fuel storage tanks for flight control and reboost, and limited avionic and communication equipment. Once assembled, it will be a fully functional spacecraft, awaiting the second shuttle flight to progress to the next stage of the assembly sequence. NASA has identified, for such an evolving structure, four milestone configurations as shown in Figure ( 1.2). Given the large size of this orbiting system and the expected growth from the initial configuration, the structural flexibility will be a key parameter governing the space station dynamics and control. The presence of environmental and operational disturbances will only add to the complexity of the problem. Hence, thorough understanding of interactions between librational and flexible body dynamics is of importance, for the appropriate control system design, to attain the desired performance. 1.2 Background to the Problem Historically, experiments with scale models have been routinely carried out to obtain useful information for the prototype design. One is, therefore, tempted to use similar SPACE STATION 'FREEDOM' Figure 1.1: One of the earlier configurations of the proposed space station Freedom PV Array V*4 PV Radiator Station Radiator Laboratory Module Stinger/Resistojet (b) PV Array Laboratory Module Logistic Module Habitation Module Japanese Module ESA Module PV Radiator Station Radiator Stinger/Resistojet (d) PV Array Laboratory Module Logistic Module Habitation Module PV Radiator Station Radiator Stinger/Resistojet (c) Chapter 1.

Chapter 1. INTRODUCTION^ 5 approach for the design of space-based structures. In fact, facilities attempting to simu- late some aspects of space environment have proved useful in testing of relatively small and essentially rigid spacecraft. However, ground-based experiments with large flexi- ble space structures have been found to be of limited value due to practical difficulty in simulating environmental effects such as gravity gradient, magnetic, free molecular, microgravity, solar radiation, etc. This has led to increased dependence on numerical methods, particularly with larger, extremely elastic and complex space configurations. A general formulation applicable to a large class of systems is always attractive. Once the governing equations of motion are established and the associated integration program is operational, it becomes a powerful versatile tool. Over the past three decades, Modi et al. as well as number of other investigators have attempted to obtain relatively general formulations for progressively complex systems to study their dynamical behaviour [1]- [8]. this has also helped in development of several linear as well as nonlinear control strategies. Of course, a number of other investigators have also approached this class of problems in a variety of different ways [9]. This has led to the generation of a vast body of literature which has been reviewed quite effectively by Modi [10] [11], Ng [12], Suleman [13], and Mah [14]. In the above mentioned developments, focus has been on the systems characterized by a large number of interconnected flexible bodies forming a tree topology. In general, dynamics of such systems is governed by a set of 'hybrid', nonlinear, nonautonomous and coupled equations of motion. Here 'hybrid' refers to the set containing both partial (elastic motion) as well as ordinary (rigid body motion) differential equations. To help obtain useful information with relative ease, it is conventional to discretize the partial differential equations into an ordinary set. This is achieved by representing the elastic deflections through a series of time dependent generalized coordinates and spatially vary- ing admissible functions, ideally satisfying geometric and natural boundary conditions. Chapter 1. INTRODUCTION^ 6 There are two fundamentally different choices for the admissible functions: component modes, which try to simulate the system behaviour through synthesis of the local com- ponent behavior; and system modes which attempt to accomplish the same but through the consideration of more global behaviour. Although component modes and their varied forms of synthesis have been used in practice quite widely, as shown by Suleman [13], through a simple example, there is a serious doubt as to the validity of the approach. The major problem is associated with the difficulty in satisfying complex boundary conditions in multibody systems. As future space structures are going to be highly flexible and can only be represented as interconnected multibody systems, the choice of modal functions for discretization has become an issue of enormous importance. This is understandable as validity of the dynamical response and control results depend on the accuracy of the discretization approach. 1.3 Scope of the Present Investigation With this as background, the thesis aims at analyzing, understanding and hopefully arriv- ing at better appreciation of the problem of discretization through a systematic study at a fundamental level. To begin with kinematics and kinetics of a flexible, multibody system with two levels of branching is described and the governing equations of motion obtained using the Lagrangian procedure. A computer code capable of accommodating discretiza- tion through both Component Mode Method (CMM) and System Mode Method(SMM) is developed as an extension of the contributions by Ng [12], Suleman [13] and Mah [14]. Two systems of contemporary interest are considered to asses comparative response: (i) two-link Mobile Flexible Manipulator(MFM) operating on a space platform; (ii) configuration proposed by the Control-Structure Interaction (CSI) program at NASA Langley Research Center [15]. Chapter 1. INTRODUCTION^ 7 Performance of the above two configurations is studied over a range of important system parameters to have some appreciation of the conditions leading to unacceptable performance. Finally, a control strategy, based on the Feedback Linearization Technique (FLT) accounting for the complete nonlinear dynamics of the system, is developed and its effectiveness assessed for the libration/vibration control of the above two configurations using both the discretization procedures. The thesis ends with concluding comments and recommendations for future work in this area. Such a comparative study of discretization procedure, as applied to multibody systems with tree topology and in the presence of nonlinear control, has never been reported before. Chapter 2 KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM The system model is identified first and reference coordinate systems explained. This is followed by a kinematic study aimed at establishing position and velocity of an ar- bitrary element of the system under consideration in terms of specified and generalized coordinates. To help study a wide variety of systems, a relatively general model of interconnected beam and plate type members, interconnected to form a tree topology, is considered in Figure ( 2.3). The system is in an arbitrary orbit about the center force, which is also the origin of the inertial reference from F0 comprised of coordinates X0, Yo, Z0. Cf is the instantaneous center of mass of the system. It consists of the central body B, to which are connected structural members Bi referred to as B1, B2, • • • , BN. This may be looked upon as the first level of branching from the trunk of a tree (main body). In turn each Bi body (i = 1, 2, • • • , N) is connected to Bi,3 bodies (j = 1, 2, • • ,ni), the second level of branching. Thus the number of bodies forming the system are 1 N E n3. j=1 The number of members N and ni as well as their positions are kept arbitrary. Fur- thermore the members are free to undergo arbitrary translational and rotational maneu- vers at the joints. This permits simulation of a vast variety of systems of contemporary and future interest. For instance, to simulate the proposed space station Freedom (present configuration which is undergoing changes), the central body Bc may simulate the main truss with the modules, stinger, radiators, photovoltaic arrays and manipulator repre- sented by Bi and B2 bodies as shown inFigure ( 2.3) 8 -N Flexible Body B Flexible Body B 1 *\ Orbit N Flexible \\ Body B1,n1 \\\ Flexible Body B2 Central Body Bc Yo / 0 R cm Flexible Body BN Flexible Body B11 Chapter 2. KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 9 Perigee Figure 2.3: A system of interconnected bodies, forming two levels of branching, considered for study. It can represent a vast variety of systems including the proposed space station. Chapter 2. KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 10 2.1 Coordinate System Consider the system model as described before. Let X0, Yo, Zo be the inertial coordinate reference located at the center of the earth. The centers of mass of undeformed and deformed configurations of the system are located at C2 and c, respectively. There is a body coordinate system attached to each member of the model which is helpful in defining relative motion between the members. Thus, reference frame 11 is attached to Bc at an arbitrary point O. Frame Fi, with origin at 02, is attached to bodies B, at the connecting point between body Bi and B. In addition, for defining attitude and solar radiation incidence angles, a reference frame is located at Cf such that the axes Xi,, Yp and Zp are parallel to Xc, Y and Zc, respectively as shown in Figure ( 2.4). Now, an arbitrary mass element dmi on body Bi can be reached through a direct path from 0, via Oi. Oc, in turn, is located with respect to the instantaneous center of mass Cf and the inertial reference frame Fo. Thus, the motion of dmi, caused by librational and vibrational motions of Bc and Bi, can be expressed in terms of the inertial coordinate system. Similarly, frame Fi,i is attached to body Bi,i and has its origin at the joint between Bi and Bi The relative position of Oi with respect to 0, is denoted by the vector di, while c12 ,3 defines the position of O relative to O. The location of the elemental mass of the central body, dmc, relative to Oc is defined by pc +77-, +Sc. Here pc indicates the undeformed position of the element; Tc, the thermal deformation; and finally Sc expresses the transverse vibration of the element. Similarly, T-i and S. define the location of the elemental mass dm„ in body B,, relative to Oi . For the elemental mass dm,,i of body B,,j, its position relative to 0,,j is defined by and Si J. The coordinate systems are shown in Figure (2.5). Orientation of the coordinate axes Xi, Y„ Zi and X, Y ,3, Z relative to Xc, Y, Z, is defined by the matrices CT and CZ,pi,j, respectively such that Chapter 2.

For instance, = {;:cjc, n4criT. It should be noted that the thermal deformation and transverse vibra- tion of B, and Bi result in the time varying characteristics of C. and C, respectively. 2.2 Position of Spacecraft in Space Consider an arbitrary spacecraft in orbit, as shown in Figure ( 2.6), with its instanta- neous center of mass at Cf . At any instant, the position of Cf is determined by the orbital elements p,i,w, c, R77, and O. Here 8 is the longitude of the ascending node; i, the inclination of orbit with respect to the ecliptic plane; co, the argument of the perigee point; c, the eccentricity of the orbit; R, the distance from the center of the earth to Cf ; and 9 , the true anomaly of the orbit. In general, p, co and c are fixed while and 19 are considered, approximately, functions of time. As the spacecraft has finite dimensions, i.e. it has mass as well as inertia, it is also free to undergo librational motion about its center of mass (in addition to the orbital motion). Let X3, Y5, Z, represent the orbital frame with coordinates aligned along the orbit normal , local vertical, and local horizontal, respectively. Any spatial orientation of Xp, Yp, Zp with respect to X8, Y3, Z, can be described by three modified Eulerian rotations in the following sequence: a pitch motion, 7,b, about the X5-axis giving the first set of intermediate axes X1, Y, Z1; a roll motion, 0, about the Z1-axis generating the second set of intermediate axes X2, Y2, Z2; and finally a yaw motion, A, about the Y2-axis yielding Xp, n and Zr,, as shown in Figure ( 2.7).

However, it is affected the system flexibility as well as translational and slewing motions of the appendages. Hence, determination of its position, at a given instant, is important [16] [17]. In Figure (2.5), C2 and Cf represent the centers of mass of the system during un- deformed and deformed conditions, respectively. The vector Cf , denotes the position of Cf relative to Ct. Thus it represents the shift in the instantaneous center of mass of the spacecraft due to its deformation. This information is necessary in evaluation of the kinetic and potential energies of the system. The vector from the origin of inertial coordinates, the center of the earth, to the mass elements dmc, dmi and dmij are denoted by Rc,Ri,Ri,j, respectively. These vectors can be written as: R,,i — Cf —^+ To, + "Tc + 8c;^ (2.3) Ri^Rcm — Cf^+ +^+ + Si); (2.4) = R — Cf^+ d +^ Tij ^ (2.5) Chapter 2.

These systems, in general, incorporate various types of Chapter 2. KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 18 driving, sensing, and controlling devices working together to achieve specified perfor- mance requirements under different loading conditions. In many of these applications, systems cannot be treated as collection of rigid bodies; i.e. flexible character of the system must be accounted for. In such cases, a mechanical system can be modeled as a collection of both rigid and flexible bodies, or an entirely flexible system depending on the situation. The flexible members may be represented as beams, plates, shells, membranes or their combinations. The design and performance analysis of such systems through dynamic simulation can be achieved provided the de- formation effect is incorporated in the mathematical model. The motion of a rigid body in the multibody system can be described by six co- ordinates defining its translation and rotation. They lead to a set of six independent second-order differential equations of motion. The exact configuration of a deformable body, however, can be identified only by infinite number of coordinates. Dynamics of such continuous systems leads to a set of partial differential equations of motion which are both time- and space-dependent. To get meaningful information about the complex system behaviour, it is convenient to convert the mathematical representation into a set of ordinary differential equations by specifying deformations in terms of admissible functions of space and time dependent generalized coordinates. Admissible functions should satisfy as many natural and geometric bound- ary conditions as possible, and often structural modes are used to that end. However, the choice of structural modes which will converge to the right answer is still a subject of considerable controversy particularly for complex, highly flexible systems with ill-defined boundary conditions. Broadly speaking, the choice of modes can be classified into two categories leading to two different methods for studying system dynamics and control (i) modes defining motion of the entire system vibrating in unision, normally obtained Chapter 2. KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 19 through finite element approach [13], referred to here as the System Mode Method (SMM); (ii) simpler, individual component modes appropriately synthesized to represent the sys- tem behaviour [12] called the Component Mode Method (CMM). In the SMM, the structure is first subdivided into finite elements with degrees of freedom at the nodes. Using the local degrees of freedom as generalized coordinates, the mass and stiffness matrices of the element can be derived readily. Applying the boundary conditions for the system and compatibility requirements between adjacent elements, the system mass and stiffness matrices can be assembled from the corresponding matrices of the elements. The system modes can be evaluated numerically by using the conventional finite element method. In the CMM, the system's flexural motion is represented in terms of the components' dynamics. The first step is to obtain the series of admissible functions, by solving the eigenvalue problem for each component, representing its elastic deformation. Next, the admissible functions are assembled so that the individual member dynamics becomes homogeneous constituent of the total system response. 2.4.2 Deformation Expression for Beam-type Substructure The governing equation for transverse vibration of a thermally fixed beam is given by (942 52mb^522 Eh, ^+ m ^t Mb = 0,^(2.8)ax4 ax2^ao with the appropriate boundary conditions. As an example, for a cantilever beam fixed at x = 0 and free at x = lb the boundary conditions are: Chapter 2. KINEMATICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 20 ^Wb -49C4ib = 0,^at x = 0;^(2.9)ax a2wb^a3wb a Alb EIb^ .114 = E ^ t 0 at x = lb.^(2.10)ax2 ax3^ax Here E/b is the bending stiffness of the beam; mb, the mass per unit length; and /14 the thermal bending moment given by .11/4 =EatT(x,y, z)zdA; .Area (2.11) where T(x, y, z) is the difference between the ambient temperature and the temperature at a point on the substructure with coordinate (x, y, z); and af is the thermal expansion coefficient of the beam material. The integral is over the cross-sectional area of the substructure. In general, a closed-form solution for the system is not available. The problem is over- come by assuming the thermal and elastic deformations to be uncoupled, i.e. the solution for thermal displacements can be obtained independent of the elastic displacements. 2.4.3 Thermal Deformation The effect of thermal deformation on transient dynamics of large space structures can be significant, however, the associated analysis, in general, would be quite formidable. Fortunately, as shown by Modi and Brereton[1] the time constant of the heat balance equation is quite small, i.e. the system attains the deformed state almost instantaneously. The steady state solution shows that the shape function for a thermally flexed free-free beam is give by: 8 = —ln[cos (1)] cos^ (2.12) Chapter 2.

The subscripts involved are as follows: orb = orbital motion; cm = centre of mass motion; h = hinge position between body Bc and Bi or between body Bi and Bi,j; jr = joint rotation due to elastic and thermal deformation; t = thermal defomation; v = transverse vibration. Chapter 3. KINETICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 26 For instance, Tt,,, refers to the contribution of kinetic energy due to the rate of thermal deformation and transverse vibration velocity.

Normally, the effect of librational and vibrational motions on the orbital trajectory is small. Hence , the orbit can be expressed by the classical Keplerian relations: R9 = h; (3.42) where h is the angular momentum per unit mass of the system; ice is the gravitational constant; and E is the eccentricity of the orbit. The general form of the equations of motion can be written as Chapter 3. KINETICS OF THE SYSTEM Mr^Mr, f of, 01/ Ail Cb CA KA QA 28 171, Cg, Kg, Qq, Mf,r^ mf / / qn, Cg,„ Kg„..

Hence, the total number of gen- eralized coordinates Ng equals the three librational coordinates IP, q5, A plus nv. M is a nonsingular asymmetric matrix of dimension Ng x Ng. The entries in M come from the second order terms of dId0(OT I aqi). C is a Ng x 1 vector. The terms here are derived from two sources: Coriolis contribution of dId0(37115q9; and from 871/aq' . K, also a Ng x 1 vector, denotes the stiffness of the system. It is composed of the terms from ÔU/öq.Q, the generalized force vector of dimension Ng x 1, is evaluated using the virtual work principle. Nonlinear entries in M together with nonlinear and time varying compo- nents of C, K and Q result in a set of coupled, nonlinear and nonautonomous equations of motion. As pointed out before, the equations of motion are applicable to a wide variety of systems because of the relatively general character of the model. They range from com- munication satellites to the evolving space station Freedom and robotic manipulators, Chapter 3. KINETICS OF THE SYSTEM^ 29 to mention a few configurations of current interest. More important features of the formulation may be summarized as follows: (i) It is applicable to an arbitrary number of beam, plate and rigid body members, in any desired orbit, interconnected to form an open branch-type topology. (ii) Joints are provided with translational and rotational degrees of freedom. For ex- ample, in the Space Station configuration, the solar panels can undergo predefined slewing and translational maneuvers with respect to the central body, to track the Sun for optimal power production. (iii) The formulation accounts for the effects of transient system inertias, shift in the center of mass, geometric nonlinearities, shear deformations and rotary inertias. It also considers solar radiation induced thermal effects. Thus it is possible to study the complex system dynamics involving interactions between librational motion, transverse vibrations and thermal deformations. (vi) Environmental forces (aerodynamic, magnetic, etc.) and operational disturbances (Orbiter docking, EVA activity, etc.) can be incorporated readily through general- ized forces and initial conditions. (v) The governing equations are programmed in a modular fashion to isolate the effects of slewing , librational dynamics, flexibility, orbital parameters, etc. (vi) The equations are amenable to discretization using both component as well as system modes thus facilitating comparison between their relative merit. (vii) The equations of motion can be cast, quite readily, into a form suitable for both linear and nonlinear control studies. Chapter 4 AN APPROACH TO CONTROL A system is usually designed according to prescribed specifications to achieve a desired level of performance. Besides performing the required tasks efficiently, it must also exhibit several desirable properties such as stability, quick response, disturbance rejection, etc. For flexible space based systems, governed by highly nonlinear, nonautonomous and coupled equations of motion, this is possible only in the presence of active control. Misawa and Hedrick [19] have reviewed the pertinent literature at some length. As can be expected, the control strategy can vary rather widely. There are literally thousands of control algorithms written to meet a variety of situations and performance requirements. More recent approaches include extended linerization [20],[21]; feedback linearization [22]-[24] or, in simplified cases, the inverse control [25] and several others [26]- [32]. In the present study, the Feedback Linearization Technique (FLT), which completely accounts for the system's nonlinear dynamics, is used to control large, flexible, multibody structures in space. 4.1 Feedback Linearization Technique (FLT) Feedback linearization is an approach for the nonlinear control system design . The basic idea is to algebraically transform the nonlinear system dynamics into an equivalent un- coupled canonical form (partly or fully ) so that linear control techniques can be applied. 30 Chapter 4. AN APPROACH TO CONTROL^ 31 It also can be used as a model-simplifying method in the development of robust or adap- tive nonlinear controllers. In its simplest form, the FLT amounts to cancellation of the nonlinearities so that the closed-loop dynamics is in a linear form. It is applicable to a class of nonlinear systems described by the so-called companion form, or the controlla- bility canonical form. A system is said to be in the companion form if its dynamics is represented by x(n) = f(x)+ b(x)u,^ (4.45) where u is the scalar control input; x is the scalar output of interest with = [x,±, • • • ,x(n)1T as the state vector; and f(x), a nonlinear function of the states . Note, in the state-space representation, Eq.(4.45) can be written as xl X2 di^ (4.46) xn^f(x) b(x)u Using the control input (assuming b to be non-zero) for the systems which can be expressed in the controllability canonical form, U =^— f].^ (4.47) One can cancel the nonlinearities and obtain the simple input-outout relation (multiple- integrator form ) Xn-1 Xn (4.48) with the control law Chapter 4. AN APPROACH TO CONTROL^ 32 V = -- k1 X1^ —kn_1xn-1,^ ( 4. 49 ) where the ki's are chosen so that Pn + kn-iP12-1 +2 .^+ki is a stable polynomial. At the same time, one can place the poles at the desired locations, i.e. reaching the pole- placement target. This leads to an exponentially stable dynamics, (4.50) which implies that x(t) —> 0. For the tasks involving tracking of a desired output xd(x), the control law (n)^ (n-1)U = Xd — kie — k—, • • • ,^, (4.51) with e = x(t)— xd(t) as the tracking error, leads to the exponentially convergent tracking . Note, similar results would be obtained if the scalar x was replaced by a vector and the scalar b by an invertible square matrix. When the nonlinear dynamics is not in the controllability canonical form, one may have to use transformations to arrive the form before using the above mentioned feedback linearization approach. At times, only partial linearization of the original dynamics is possible. Consider a system as = f (x , u). (4.52) Let us apply the technique referred to as input-state linearization. There are two steps involved. First, one finds a state transformation Z = w(x) and a input transforma- tion U g (x , v) so that the nonlinear system dynamics is transformed into that of an equivalent linear system. Next, one may use a standard linear technique (such as the Chapter 4. AN APPROACH TO CONTROL^ 33 —IP- 0 l̂ib • " V- KT Z U=g (x, v) x=f (x, u) Linearization Loop Pole Placement Loop Z—w (x) Figure 4.8: Block diagram of a feedback linearized control system pole placement) to design the equivalent input v. The block diagram for the procedure is presented in Figure (4.8). Followings remarks can be made about the method: (i) The result is valid in a large region of the state space except for the singularities. (ii) The technique involves combination of the state transformation as well as the input transformation, with the state feedback in both. Thus, it is a linearization by feedback and hence the designation Feedback Linearization Technique. This is fundamentally different from the Jacobian linearization for a small range operation which is the basis for linear control. (iii) In order to implement the control law, the new state components (Z) must be available. They must be physically meaningful, measurable and amenable to de- termination from Z=w(x) . (iv) In general, one relies on the system model for both the controller design and the Chapter 4. AN APPROACH TO CONTROL^ 34 computation . If there is an uncertainty in the model, it will lead to errors in the computation of both the new state Z and the control input U. (v) Tracking control can also be considered. However, the desired motion then needs to be expressed in terms of the complete new state vector. Complex computations may be involved in transforming the desired motion specifications ( of physical output variables ) into specifications in terms of the new state. 4.2 Control Implementation Procedures As shown in Chapter 3 , dynamics of a flexible spacecraft with and 4f corresponding to librational and vibrational generalized coordinates, respectively, is given by [ Mr,r Mr,1 { r + {Fr^{Qr Mf,r Mf,f^f^Ff^Q f (4.53) Here Mr,,. is a 3 x 3 matrix for the librational degrees of freedom; Mrj is a 3 x (Ng — 3) matrix, representing coupling between the rigid and flexible generalized coordinates; Mf,r = Mr,f; and Mfj is a (Nq — 3) x (Ng — 3) submatrix for the flexible degrees of freedom. Fr and Qr are 3 x 1 vectors representing the first and second order coupling terms and the generalized force for the rigid part of the system, respectively. Similarly, Ff and Q f are (Ng —3) x 1 vectors corresponding to the first and second order coupling terms and generatized force for the flexible part of the system, respectively. Assuming only the generalized coordinates of the librational degrees of freedom to be observable, the control force Q f is not applicable and hence set to zero. The objective is to determine the control input Q,. such that the closed-loop system is linearized and has desired pole-positions. Consistent with the assumption: Chapter 4.

The controller is composed of two parts: the primary controller Qra, = M(Md + F; and the secondary controler: QT,s = M(kve + kpe). The quasi-closed loop control block diagram is shown in Figure (4.9). Note, the controller solves the tracking, stability and linearization problems at the same time. As shown in Chapter 6, the control strategy improves the system behaviour significantly. Chapter 4. AN APPROACH TO CONTROL^ 37 Figure 4.9: Block diagram of the Quasi-closed loop control system Chapter 5 COMPUTATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS As pointed out before, formulation of the problem for dynamical and control studies of a multibody system, comprised of rigid bodies, beam and plate type members is a challenging task. The governing equations were found to be extremely lengthy (even in the matrix form), highly nonlinear, nonautonomous, and coupled. Equally formidable is the development of an efficient numerical code for their integration. This chapter briefly indicates approach used to this end. Modular nature to help isolate influence of various system parameters as well as user friendliness were the two characteristic features which guided the process. Depending on the discretization process used, two separate programs were required. 5.1 Program Structure of the Component Modes Method (CMM) The overall program is composed of several stages or phases. The first one is the in- put phase, followed by numerical integration, output part and completion test. It is schematically shown in Figure (5.10). The input phase includes: (i) orbital parameters p,i ,(4.; and eccentricity e; (ii) program control parameters, simulation period, numerical integration tolerance, ini- tial step-size, and output data; (iii) initial conditions of the state variables. 38 Chapter 5. COMPUTATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS^ 39 Figure 5.10: Program flow-chart for the CMM simulation Chapter 5. COMPUTATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS^ 40 Two data files used are referred to as MODEL and MODE. They are described in the Appendix B. The method DGEAR was chosen to perform the numerical integration of the equations of motion. This is a mature method. In most cases, it is robust. Also it can automatically adjust the integration step-size and select appropriate iteration procedure. FCN block calculates the right function values, e.g. value of the the state vector at the time of T + AT. Here AT is the time step-size used by the DGEAR at the instant. Output and completion test-blocks are determined by the input data file. They are used to output the data in a proper format and stop the simulation at a chosen time, respectively. The numerical integration flowchart is presented in Figure (5.11). 5.2 Program Structure for the System Modes Method (SMM) The first step is to obtain system modes using the finite element method. Thus the program has two major parts: the finite element module; and the dynamic analysis module. They are presented in Figure (5.12) and (5.13), respectively. Updating of the system modes for spacecraft with time dependent geometries, such as rotating solar panels or slewing robotic arms, cannot be overemphasized. System modes reflect elastic character of the entire spacecraft, hence their variation with the geometry can affect the system response significantly. There is an important decision to be made: how often to update the system modes? Obviously one has to strike a balance between the available computational resources, need for real-time information and accuracy. Long updating time may lead to discontinuity in response, which may not be acceptable. Of course, by frequent updating one can avoid such problem, however, only at a considerable computational cost. The input I block in Figure (5.12) introduces material properties of the structure Chapter 5.

Chapter 6 RESULTS AND DISCUSSION 6.1 Two Link Mobile Servicing System With the formulation applicable to a class of multibody systems in hand and the associ- ated computer code operational, the next logical step is to illustrate its effectiveness. To that end two different configurations of contemporary interest are considered: (i) a two-arm, mobile, flexible manipulator operating on a rigid platform; (ii) NASA proposed system for Control-Structure-Interaction(CSI) study. There are three basic objectives: (i) potential to undertake parametric studies if desired; (ii) effectiveness of the FLT for control accounting for the complete nonlinear system dynamics; (iii) relative merit of the system and component modes discretization. It is not intended here to generate a vast body of results for each of the systems under consideration. Of course the code can provide the information as desired by spacecraft designers. The objective is primarily to show the potential of this powerful versatile tool. The proposed space station Freedom, expected to be operational by the turn of the century, will support a Mobile Servicing System (MSS). It is essentially a two link manip- ulator on a mobile base which can traverse along the main truss of the station treated as a 45 Chapter 6.

The system is expected to be the workhorse for the station's construction, maintenance, operation, and future evolution. The objective of the simulation here is to assess: (a) effect of the more important system parameters on the response; (b) effectiveness of the nonlinear feedback linearization control. The system geometry is shown in Figure (6.14) with the numerical values used in the simulation presented in Table (6.1). The slewing maneuver of the manipulator is taken to be a sine-ramp function thus resulting in zero velocity and acceleration at the beginning and end of the operation: Os = { Om • (r/T8) — (0,,/27) sin(277-/7-8), r; < Tm Om^ T > rn, . ^(6. 64) Here: 08, slew angle at an instant 0 (true anomaly); 19,, maximum slew angle; and -r8, duration of the slew. To help isolate the effect, only the lower arm was considered to undergo the specified slewing motion in the plane of the orbit. Also only the first cantilever mode is used to represent the link flexibility. The space station is taken to be rigid although the formulation and the program accounts for its flexibility. Figure (6.15) shows the effect of increasing the magnitude as well as speed of the slewing maneuver. Three cases are considered corresponding to the slewing magnitude of 45°, 90° and 180° completed in 10 minutes with the manipulator located at the center of the station. Note, the inplane maneuver excites only the pitch librational motion, Chapter 6. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION^ 47 Figure 6.14: Geometry of the two-link manipulator supported by a rigid space platform. Chapter 6. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION^ 48 i.e. the out-of plane librations, roll and yaw, remain zero. The response follows the expected trend. With the increase in amplitude and speed of the maneuver, from 450 at 4.5°/min to 1800 at 18°/min, the peak pitch response increases from 0.01° to 0.035°. Corresponding vibratory response at the tip of the lower arm (611) in the 1714 direction is also shown for the three cases. Note., the maximum 611 increases significantly, from 0.3mm to 1.2mm . The effect of speed is isolated in the response results given in Figure (6.16). Now, the fixed inplane maneuver of 180° is completed at increasingly faster rates (18° /min, 36°/min, and 90°/min). As can be expected, the librational response is modulated at the vibra- tional frequency with the pick çb exceeding 0.050. Note, the tip response at the lower arm exceeds 10cm for fastest maneuver considered ! This clearly suggests that active control would be necessary during large , fast maneuvers to maintain the response within an acceptable level. Figure (6.17) assesses the effect of manipulator location on the system response for a 180° maneuver completed in 10 minutes. Two cases are considered : (a) manipulator located at the center of the station as before (same as Case (a) in Figure (6.16)); (b) manipulator located near the tip of the station. Note, besides the librational and manip- ulator tip response, deflection time history of the upper arm end (81) is also plotted. As can be expected, several observations of interest can be made: (i) As expected, the pitch amplitude increases significantly due to a large reaction mo- ment about the center of mass. In the present case it increases almost by a factor of 10 ! (ii) The inplane deflection 81 of the upper arm is large than that of the lower arm 611. (iii) Effect of the MSS location on the vibratory response of its arms, though present, is relatively small. Chapter 6. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION^ 49 Figure (6.18) studies the effect MSS location during a faster maneuver of 1800 in 5 minutes (twice the previous slewing rate). Except for the frequency modulation in the pitch, the response character remains essentially the same as in Figure (6.17). Next the attention was turned to the system response with the librational control using the FLT. Typical results are given for the influence of the slewing speed with the manipulator located at the center of the system in Figures (6.19)-(6.21) and at the tip of the station Figures (6.22)-(6.23). Note, the librational motion is controlled, as expected, quite well depending upon the choice of gains. The vibratory motion being uncontrolled continues to persist as no damping is considered. There are several options available to control the manipulator vibrations using the conventional proportional control strategies, linear or nonlinear, with or without damping. These options are not pursued here as the main objective is to assess applicability of the FLT to this class of system. The extension to a hybrid control strategy with the FLT applied to the librational degrees and proportional (or other conventional control) control procedure applied to the vibrational degrees is rather routine. 0.025 V °0.000 -0.025 0.025 0.000 -0.025 0.050^0.100 (b) 0.000 0.150^0.200 0.250 0.000 0.050 0.100 0.150 0.200 0.250 -0.00100 -0.00000 0.00100 -0.00000 -0.00100 0.000 0.00100 0.050 0.100 0.150 0.200 0.250 (a) 0.050^0.100 0.150^0.200 0.250 0.025 0.000 -0.025 0.000 ^ 0.050 ^ 0.100 ^ 0.150 ^ 0.200 ^ 0.250 0.000^0.050 0.100^0.150 0.200^0.250 -0.00000 _0.00100 - 8^(m) Chapter 6.

Chapter 6. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION^ 59 6.2 NASA's Cotrol-Structure Interaction Model As pointed out before, with increase in size of the space structures, flexibility effects have progressively become more important in ensuring successful completion of a given mission. The frequency spectrum for a flexible space based system often shows extremely low fundamental frequency with closely spaced and/or overlapping higher modes. This raises the possibility of the control system bandwidth interfering with the system dynam- ics making understanding of the Control-Structure-Interaction(CSI) problems and their resolution extremely important. This has led to the establishment of a major project by NASA, involving ground as well as space based experiments, to better appreciate the CSI oriented issues [9]. The CSI project has established an evolutionary structural model for dynamics and control study as shown in Figure (6.24). It consists of a uniform beam supporting a one arm flexible manipulator and a fixed rigid antenna. The manipulator can be located at any desired position on the beam. Two such positions are shown in the figure: manipulator located at the center or the tip of the beam. Objective is to control the manipulator's tip position during slewing maneuvers. In the present study, this is attempted using the FLT with the flexibility discretization accomplished using system as well as component modes. Thus the response results would help assess: (i) effectiveness of the control strategy using the FLT; (ii) comparative response using the two discretization procedures. The numerical values used in the simulation are presented in Table (6.2) The manipulator, initially aligned with the main truss, executes a slewing maneuver of 108° in 10 minutes when located at: (i) the midpoint of the space station (beam); (ii) the tip of the truss, i.e. 57.5 m from the center. Corresponding results are given in Figures (6.25) and (6.26), respectively. Chapter 6.

Both the manipulator and the truss tip motions are rather small. Furthermore, the general trend of the response time history is essentially the same except for local details. The main difference seems to be the chattering response with the SMM which is attributed to the updating of the system mode (fundamental) during the slewing maneuver. In the present case the new system mode was calculated every 2.78 minutes (100 min./36 steps), to save the computational effort. Of course, by more frequent updating, the chattering can be eliminated. Chapter 6.

Chapter 7 CONCLUDING REMARKS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE WORK Advent of the computer revolution has made it possible for dynamicists and control engi- neers to analyze complex space based systems. Dynamics of a flexible orbiting platform, supporting a mobile flexible manipulator, represents a system never envisaged by pio- neers of the classical mechanics including Newton, Euler, Lagrange and Hamilton. Yet, their elegant methodologies help us cast such formidable systems into into mathematical models, and computers assist in their analyses. The present thesis has attempted to tackle a class of such challenging problems of considerable practical importance. More important aspects of the study and associated results may be summarized as follows: (i) An approach to a relatively general formulation for studying dynamics and control of systems, characterized by interconnected flexible bodies, has been explained. (ii) A computer code for the above model, leading to extremely lengthy, highly nonlinear, nonautonomous and coupled equations of motion, has been developed. (iii) The formulation together with the operational integration program represent pow- erful tools for design and parametric evaluation of the system performance. (iv) Application of the above mentioned development to a specific system of the space station based flexible manipulator, in the presence of nonlinear FLT control, sug- gests versatility of the computer code. Results show that large and rapid maneuvers 64 Chapter 7. CONCLUDING REMARKS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE WORK65 can lead to unacceptable response. The information is fundamental to the design of the system as well as the controller. (v) The study using the NASA's control-structure interaction model shows the response trends to be essentially the same with the component or the system mode dis- cretization. The differences are primarily local in character, at least for the case considered. The study presents a first step in approaching even the preliminary level of under- standing for the dynamics and control of complex flexible systems. The thesis has es- tablished a methodology, however, systematic parametric studies are necessary with a variety of configurations, of practical importance, to develop a data bank with perfor- mance and design charts. This would demand considerable time, effort and computer cost, but should lead to important design tools so urgently needed for the next genera- tion of spacecraft. It will also help in planning of the proposed space based experiments aimed at dynamics and control of flexible structures, analysis of results when such exper- iments are conducted, with the assessment and improvement of the models and control algorithms.

Description | A relatively general formulation for studying dynamics and control of a large class of systems, characterized by interconnected rigid bodies, beam and plate type structural members forming a tree topology with two levels of branching, is developed using the Lagrangian procedure. The governing equations are discretized using two fundamentally different approaches of system and component modes synthesis. Versatility of the formulation is demonstrated, through its application to two systems of contemporary interest,in the presence of nonlinear control: (i) Space station based, two-arm mobile, flexible manipulator; (ii) NASA proposed configuration involving a flexible slewing arm abode a flexible truss with a rigid antenna. Relative merit of the two discretization procedures is assessed over a range of system parameters through comparison of the controlled and uncontrolled responses. Results suggest that the component mode synthesis, though relatively easy to implement, can lead to inaccurate response unless the boundary con-ditions are modeled precisely. Unfortunately, this is seldom possible, particularly with complex systems of current interest. On the other hand, discretization through system modes, though precise, would require frequent updating leading to an increase in the computational time. The investigation represents an original contribution of far-reaching consequence to the field. Such a planned approach to assess discretization methodologies with reference to space based system has not been reported in open literature. |
