The purpose of this study is controlling active vibration of satellite flexible structures during attitude maneuvers. A smart structure is a structure which is able to sense and control active reaction to any external factors and stimulation. As it comes from the definition of smart structures, development of this knowledge depends on the materials science development, theories and strategies for control. In materials science, smart materials are developed in such a way that they are able to sense and react in a controllable mode effectively. The smart materials are combined with conventional structures and they are used as sensors and actuators. Furthermore, smart structures subject include design, implementation methods and control systems over structures so that the control system receives signals from sensors after processing. Then, it sends signals to the actuator in order to achieve a desirable response to incoming stimuli. An issue taken into account in this monograph is active vibration control of satellite flexible structures in attitude maneuvers, which was done by the use of smart materials in satellite structure. For this purpose, a mathematical model of a satellite flexible panel was derived first. Then, a computer code was generated. Finally, by comparing the results of non-smart control and smart control, we came to this conclusion that the use of smart materials led to a decrease in the amplitude of the vibration and the reduction of the time required for damping vibrations.
