Concurrent design of mechatronic systems

[B][FONT=&quot]In the traditional process of mechatronic systems design, a sequential approach treats each of the design steps individually without considering the interaction between them. This paper presents a new optimization design methodology that is applicable to mechatronic systems. This new methodology is called concurrent design of mechatronic systems (CDMS). A four bar linkage is taken as the mechanical part; the geometric and dynamic parameters are optimized simultaneously with the choice of the motor as the electrical part. A multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) is used to solve this complex optimization problem, which contains both discrete and continuous variables.
