Robust Controller Design for Active Vibration Control Conference Paper uri icon


  • A novel frequency-domain technique, having its roots in Quantitative Feedback Theory (QFT), has been developed to design controllers for active vibration control (AVC). The advantages are a plant-based design according to performance specifications, and the ability to include structured uncertainties in the critical plant parameters like passive bearing stiffness or damping. In this paper, we describe the background theory of single-input, single-output (SISO) and multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) QFT design, followed by development of the theory adapted for AVC. Application examples are considered next, outlining the design method for both cases. Simulation results for the systems studied are presented showing the effectiveness of the technique in attenuating vibration.
