[more ▼] This thesis studies innovative, stable but non-causal inverse dynamics algorithms for flexible manipulators. Robust direct optimal control methods are proposed. The nonlinear finite element method is used to derive the mechanical model of the multibody system and the time discretization is performed using the generalized-alpha method. The sparse gradients of the optimization constraints are computed using a semi-analytical method. The inverse dynamics of both serial and parallel kinematic manipulators with flexible links and joints is successfully studied using the proposed method. Finally, the possible extension of the method for the integrated control/structure optimization of mechatronic systems is investigated.

[more ▼] The inverse dynamics analysis of underactuated multibody systems aims at determining the control inputs in order to track a prescribed trajectory. This paper studies the inverse dynamics of non-minimum phase underactuated multibody systems with serial and parallel planar topology, e.g. for end-effector control of flexible manipulators or manipulators with passive joints. Unlike for minimum phase systems, the inverse dynamics of non-minimum phase systems cannot be solved by adding trajectory constraints (servoconstraints) to the equations of motion and applying a forward time integration. Indeed, the inverse dynamics of a non-minimum phase system is known to be non-causal, which means that the control forces and torques should start before the beginning of the trajectory (preactuation phase) and continue after the end-point is reached (post-actuation phase). The existing stable inversion method roposed for general nonlinear non-minimum phase systems requires to derive explicitly the equations of the internal dynamics and to solve a boundary value problem. This paper proposes an alternative solution strategy which is based on an optimal control approach using a direct transcription method. The method is illustrated for the inverse dynamics of an underactuated serial manipulator with rigid links and four degrees-of-freedom and an underactuated parallel machine. An important advantage of the proposed approach is that it can be applied directly to the standard equations of motion of multibody systems either in ODE or in DAE form. Therefore, it is easier to implement this method in a general purpose simulation software.

[more ▼] In the context of the mechatronic design of lightweight machines and robots, this paper studies optimal control problems in flexible multibody dynamics. Based on a direct transcription of the initial problem, a direct collocation method is used. This method leads to a large but sparse nonlinear programming problem for which standard solvers are available. The implemention of this method based on a finite element simulation tool for flexible multibody systems is described. The connections between the generalized-alpha time integration scheme, which is commonly used for this kind of applications, and the formulation of the optimization problem are highlighted. The methodology is illustrated for two academic examples of rigid and flexible robotic systems. [less ▲] Detailed reference viewed: 150 (26 ULg) |
