Paper Abstract

The active control of vibration using point actuators has received much attention especially for aircraft and aerospace structural applications. Presented here is a means by which acoustically excited panel vibrations may be controlled through the action of a single actuator. The actuator consists of a single-sheet piezoceramic embedded in a composite panel. A robust control algorithm is implemented to attenuate the dominant modes of the panel response. The sensing is provided by a second piezoceramic also embedded in the panel. Beside the system identification, special emphasis is given to the robust controller design based on H(infinity ) methods. The presented results demonstrate the effectiveness of a parallel H(infinity )- controller design procedure achieving significant attenuation levels in a broad frequency band.
