A framework for brain learning-based control of smart structures (2019)
A novel framework for intelligent structural control is proposed using reinforcement learning. In this approach, a deep neural network learns how to improve structural responses using feedback control. The effectiveness of the framework is demonstrated in a case study for a moment frame subjected to earthquake excitations. The performance of the learning method was improved by proposing a state-selector function that prevented the neural network from forgetting key states. Results show that the controller significantly improves structural responses not only to earthquake records on which it was trained but also to earthquake records new to the controller. The controller also has stable performance under environmental uncertainties. This capability distinguishes the proposed approach and makes it more appropriate for the situations in which it is likely that the controller will be exposed to unpredictable external excitations and high degrees of uncertainties.
