Multidisciplinary Design Optimization for an Earth Observation Satellite
This paper presents the multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) for an earth observation satellite. The aim of the paper is to use various multidisciplinary optimization methods to optimize the numerical models of an earth observation satellite under iSIGHTTM software environment. Based on the best earth observation criteria, a mathematical model of the earth observation satellite is proposed, which considers the design variables, the state variables and constraints of the payload system, the attitude system, the control system, the power system, the structure system, and the propulsion system. This paper conducts the optimization by using the above three methods, and compare the efficiency and applicability among the methods.
