Paper Abstract

This paper presents experimental results in active vibration isolation using a new version of the adaptive Least Mean Squares control algorithm. The algorithm is implemented digitally as a tracking notch filter in an experiment where the actuator and error sensor are collocated. A pair of all-pass filters are utilized to generate the sine and cosine signals needed by the adaptive filter and troublesome modes of the plant are identified off-line and cancelled by direct inversion. The closed loop system shows two orders of magnitude reduction in force transmissibility over open loop and over a decade of frequencies.
