Beschreibung

In previous research, an aerodynamic feeding system was developed, which autonomously adapts to different components by using a genetic algorithm that controls the physical parameters of the system (e.g. angle of inclination, noz-zle pressure). The algorithm starts with two individuals with random values, gen-erated within the boundaries of the parameters set by the user. Due to this, the setting time - the time that passes until a satisfactory orientation rate is reached - is hard to predict. The aim of this work is to identify basic interactions of geo-metric component properties with the physical parameters of the aerodynamic feeding system to determine in which areas of the workspace a satisfactory solu-tion can be expected. By doing so, the initial population of the genetic algorithm can be generated based on certain geometric properties and would therefore no longer be random, presumably reducing setting time. To identify interactions of component properties and system parameters, exem-plary components were developed. They represent relevant single properties that have significant impact on the aerodynamic orientation process. These compo-nents were then fed into the aerodynamic orientation process and their behavior was documented. To identify correlations between certain geometric properties and physical parameters of the feeding system, the tests were planned and carried out using Design of Experiments methods. The results of the tests were also used to determine the direct interrelations of said properties and the suitability for aer-odynamic orientation.
