Piezoelectric Actuator-Active Vibration Control of the Shaft Line for a Gas Turbine Engine Test Stand Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Active Vibration Control (AVC) actuators which are discussed in the literature include piezoelectric, electromagnetic (contacting and non-contacting) and hydraulic. This paper presents results of an application of rotating machinery active vibration control (AVC) utilizing piezoelectric actuators. The paper gives actual test data on an aircraft engine test stand-shaft line, unlike the majority of related papers which are entirely theoretical or provide test results only on small, laboratory rotors. The AVC significantly suppresses vibration through two critical speeds of the shaft line.
