What is the optimal torque design in order to minimize the discounted lifecycle cost of the actuator?

An aircraft control actuator is part of the flight control system that enables an airplane to fly. It is important that the actuators are reliable. Reliability can be defined as the probability a system is functioning, so it is a number between 0 and 1. One way to increase the reliability of the actuator is …
