FUZZY-SLIDING MODE CONTROL FOR VIBRATION DAMPING OF FLEXIBLE STRUCTURES
Additional Document Info
A control methodology integrating sliding mode control, distributed parameter systems theory, and fuzzy control is presented for the vibration damping of flexible structures. The method reduces the theoretically infinite-order system to a second-order representation, still capturing its vibratory nature in a series of decentralized input/output loops. A sliding controller is then designed with fuzzy control gain weighting to increase the performance of the system off the sliding surface. The results of computer simulations are presented including comparisons demonstrating superior damping performance to output velocity feedback.
