stabilization system, optimization, operating requirements, penalty function, error, moment stiffness


The article deals with features of H2/Hinf optimization of the stabilization system using two types of penalty function directed on provision of both the system’s stability and operating characteristics given to the system. Researched systems are assigned for stabilization of equipment operated on moving vehicles. The novelty of the research is introducing a new type of penalty function. The expressions for basic operating requirements are represented. The choice of the optimization algorithms is grounded including the Nelder–Mead method and genetic algorithm. The features of the genetic algorithm are described. The comparative analysis of optimization by both methods has been done. The optimization results in the form of transient processes are represented. The obtained results can be useful for systems assigned for stabilization of equipment operated on moving vehicles of the wide class.
