A method for generating on-off command profiles for flexible systems is presented. The command profiles move a system without residual vibration while using a specified amount of actuator fuel. Robustness to modeling errors can be incorporated into the design of the command signals. Techniques are presented that facilitate implementation and indicate prudent choices for the amount of fuel to be used. The method is compared to other command generation techniques that balance fuel usage and slew time.
