Paper Abstract

Low Authority Threshold Control (LATC) is an active control strategy resulting in a piecewise continuous, with respect to time, constant gain control law which may be used for the vibration control of flexible structures. The LATC optimal control law gains are dependent on the state vector at the time the gains are applied and are defined by a two-point boundary value problem and a set of integral equality constraints. Because an iterative solution technique is required to determine the optimal gains, the real-time implementation of this control law presented certain difficulties. In this work, a neural network system is trained to determine the optimal gains in real-time for each of two experiments: a cantilevered beam and a nonlinear Duffing oscillator. The optimal gains generated by the neural network system are utilized in an LATC rate feedback control law for the vibration control of these systems.
