Paper Abstract

Vibration reduction in mechanical systems is an open issue. Indeed the stresses associated to the dynamic amplifications can affect systems’ performances and life cycle time. Nowadays the possibility to integrate sensors, actuators and control logics, in order to create a smart structure able to reduce vibration levels in all the operating conditions, represents a very attractive solution. This paper presents a comparison between two control strategies for vibration suppression in flexible structures: the Direct Velocity Feedback (DVF) and the Active Tuned Mass Damper (ATMD). As test case, the model of a smart cable for electric power distribution has been investigated.
