dc.description.abstractA solar sail is an example of a gossamer structure that is proposed as an propulsion system for future space missions. Since it is a large scale flexible structure that requires a long time for its deployment, active control may be required to prevent it from deviating into a non-recoverable state. In this paper, we conceptually address control of an evolving flexible structure using a growing double pendulum model. Controlling an evolving system poses a major challenge to control design because it involves time-varying parameters, such as inertia and stiffness. By employing a neural network based adaptive control, we illustrate that the evolving double pendulum can be effectively regulated when fixed-gain controllers are deficient due to presence of time-varying parameters.en_US
