Covariance-matrix adaptive method for approximate time-optimal reorientation maneuvers

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

Abstract

The Covariance Matrix Adaptive-Evolutionary Strategy (CMA-ES) method provides a high quality estimate of the control solution for a satellite reorientation problem that includes multiple path constraints. The CMA-ES algorithm offers two significant advantages over heuristic methods such as Particle Swarm or Bacteria Foraging Optimization: it builds an approximation to the covariance matrix of the cost function, and uses that to determine a direction of maximum likelihood for the search, reducing the chance of stagnation; and it achieves second-order, quasi-Newton convergence behavior.
