Wavelet-based excitation representation and response determination of linear and nonlinear systems
The dissertation determines the evolutionary spectrum of non-stationary stochastic processes and describes the time-varying characteristics of the response of linear and nonlinear dynamic systems subject to non-stationary ...
A generalized trust region SQP algorithm for equality constrained optimization
We introduce and analyze a class of generalized trust region sequential quadratic programming (GTRSQP) algorithms for equality constrained optimization. Unlike in standard trust region SQP (TRSQP) algorithms, the optimization ...
Robust momentum manager controller for space station applications
An innovative methodology to design a robust Control Momentum Gyro (CMG) momentum manager for the International Space Station (ISS) is developed. Unlike most other momentum manager designs, which use either a Linear Quadratic ...
