Abstract

Orbit transfer maneuvers are here considered as benchmark cases for comparing performance of different optimization techniques in the framework of direct methods. Two different classes of evolutionary algorithms, a conventional genetic algorithm and an estimation of distribution method, are compared in terms of performance indices statistically evaluated over a prescribed number of runs. At the same time, two different types of problem representations are considered, a first one based on orbit propagation and a second one based on the solution of Lambert's problem for direct transfers. In this way it is possible to highlight how problem representation affects the capabilities of the considered numerical approaches.
