WU Di, CHENG Lin, WANG Wei, LI Junfeng
 doi: 10.15982/j.issn.2096-9287.2021.20200090
The traditional homotopy method usually transforms the low-thrust fuel-optimal control problem into the energy-optimal problem to increase the convergence rate of the indirect method. However, it is still necessary to guess the initial values of the costates to initialize the solving algorithm. In this paper, the optimization model of the fuel-optimal problem is embedded in the switching system with the analytical initial costates, which further improves the convergence rate with the analytical initialization. Firstly, the switching system is introduced with the embedded fuel-optimal problem. The switching function is designed to realize the switching and continuation. Secondly, based on the linearization technique, the target system is designed with analytical initial costates, initializing the solving algorithm by a simple nominal trajectory. Finally, the numerical simulation shows the effectiveness of the proposed method, which is more efficient than the traditional homotopy method.

To date, Light Emitting Diodes-based (LED) illuminators are widely used for plants lighting in greenhouses in addition to natural light, as well as in plant factories without natural light. Optimization of artificial lighting parameters, such as the daily light integral and the ratios of different spectral components, can significantly reduce the cost of crop production in light culture including Space Greenhouses (SG) in Biological Life Support Systems (BLSS). However, the optimization of LED lighting systems is so far limited by the lack of information about the physiological effects caused by narrow-band radiation, as well as the complexity of the mathematical description of plant crops reactions to the changes of LED lighting parameters. In conditions of artificial illumination, crop producers usually strive to establish an optimal light regime that is constant throughout the whole growing season. However, there is experimental data on changes in the requirements for the illumination regime of crops with increasing age of plants. A promising approach to improving the parameters of crops LED lighting is the adaptive method of search engine optimization using biological feedback. The Adaptive Lighting System (ALS) is described on the basis of illuminator with red and white LEDs built at the Institute for Biomedical Problems (Moscow, Russia) for Chinese cabbage cultivation. The adaptive control procedure implements a continuous automatic search for current lighting parameters that provide optimal plant growth characteristics in real time. ALS includes a closed growth chamber with Light Assembly (LA) based on red and white LEDs, equipped with a Gas CO2 Analyzer (GA). The Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) from each type of LEDs can be controlled independently from each other according to the program in the MicroProcessor (MP). Periodically, infrared GA measures the decrease in CO2 concentration inside the growth chamber caused by Visible Photosynthesis (VF) of the crop. MP receives a signal from the GA output and calculates the photosynthesis rate of the crop, as well as the value of the lighting quality functional at the current time. Then the program compares the obtained values of the optimization criterion at the current moment and at the previous step and calculates the direction of the gradient according to picked algorithm and the new values of the LED supply currents, leading to a change in the value of the optimization criterion in the right direction. Further, the power supply unit realizes the currents of LED chains of each type and LA changes the plant lighting mode. As a criterion for the lighting quality in SG we used the minimum specific value of the Equivalent System Mass (ESM), which depends on the plants lighting regime. The cost coefficients of the unit of SG planting area equivalent mass and the unit of electric power consumed by SG significantly depend both on the spacecraft design and on the space expedition scenario. According to the literature, the equivalent system mass estimates depending on the light flux density and the crop light efficiency have been calculated in a spacecraft for the space expedition scenario at a long-term use lunar base with a crew of 4. To search for the current optimal lighting parameters during the plant growth, gradient and simplex algorithms were used. As optimization factors, the integral PPFD incident on the crop at the shoot tips level and the ratio of red and white light flux densities (factors X1 and X2, respectively) were used. Factor X1 was regulated in the range from 200 μmol/(m2·s) to 700 μmol/(m2·s), and factor X2 was from 0 to 1.5. The effectiveness of ALS was evaluated by comparing ESM when using ALS or the best constant LED lighting from comparison experiment. Adaptive optimization of Chinese cabbage crop lighting from the 14th to 24th day of vegetation according to the minimum ESM criterion (1) for the lunar base expedition led to a 14.9% saving in the SG equivalent mass. Similar systems with other optimization criterion can be use for terrestrial plant factories.

Abstract(95) HTML(35) PDF 1503KB(22)
The mission trajectories of the Chang’E-5 are complicated with many constraints. Selecting a sampling area is largely determined by inseparable from the trajectory design. In this paper, the sampling area selection method based on the orbital geometry in the Chang’E-5 mission was first proposed and practiced. This method is constrained by principles of the most compact task schedule, the least fuel consumption, the most launch opportunities, and other requirements for sub-systems. First, the feasible sampling area range with the least of engineering implementation cost is calculated. And then the final sampling area range is determined by comprehensively considering the topographic safety and scientific value. Compared with the traditional method, this method considers the strong coupling between the location of the sampling area and the mission trajectory, which is unique to the lunar sampling return mission Besides, this method determines the location and range of the sampling area from the aspects of feasible engineering implementation and wide adaptability, thus ensuring the optimality and wide adaptability of the mission plan. Due to the launch vehicle, the established launch window has been postponed from 2017 to 2020. The designed sampling area range is updated to the new launch date, ensuring that the mission trajectory design remained unchanged. The design laid a solid foundation ensuring the complete success of the Chang’ E-5 Mission.

Irregular curves are often used as navigation landmark in the landing of celestial probes. Accurate matching of curves is an important premise for visual navigation. For the problem that curve descriptor matching algorithm are difficult to accurately match and curvature matching algorithm can only handle a pair of curves, an accurate curve matching algorithm combining curve descriptor and curvature is proposed. The curves are extracted by Edge Drawing algorithm first; then the descriptors for curves and supporting regions are built, and the rough matching is completed based on Nearest Neighbor Distance Ratio. After, the unsigned curvature integral is calculated and the curvature is sampled at equal integration intervals. The accurate curve matching is realized based on Normalized Cross Correlation. The experimental results demonstrate that, the algorithm can achieve more than 84% accurate matching rate under scale, rotation and illumination transformations.

Abstract(50) HTML(7) PDF 987KB(4)
Designing a deep-space flexible multi-agent probe capable of autonomous task planning is an important direction for future research and development of deep space exploration technology. Multi-agent deep-space probes involve multiple objects, complex constraints and the uncertain deep space environment in mission planning, but traditional mission planning languages may not describe mission planning accurately, intuitively and concisely. In this paper, a knowledge graph is proposed to represent the planning knowledge for a multi-agent deep space probe. The method first carries out knowledge extraction from the deep space probe, then associates the probe with its state and actions by knowledge fusion, and finally mines the potential relationships between agents by knowledge processing. Compared with MA-PDDL, the method proposed in this paper is simpler and more intuitive, which enables the probe to describe its mission planning autonomously, flexibly, and accurately.

The overlapping surface structure is used in the manufacturing process of such a landing airbag, and the spacecraft launch recovery landing test is carried out. In the test, the model landing is stable without rollover and obvious rebound. After the test, the airbag and model structure are in good condition without damage. The results verify that the feasibility of the overlapping surface configuration can be used in the manufacture of a landing airbag for large load spacecraft.
