Dynamic Component-Based Design Optimization of Multirotor Aircraft

Philip Renkert, Andrew Alleyne

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Rising complexity of engineered systems, increasing needs for coordination among specialized design teams, and the emergence of component-based design modalities have created a need for component-based design optimization tools. Further, many modern systems are dynamic, and dynamic performance is a core component of the design objective. This work builds on a hybrid methodology for component-based design optimization by expanding the formulation to dynamic systems. The method is applied to select a planar quadrotor's components and input trajectory to minimize the to complete a dynamic mission.
