Paper Abstract

In order to minimize the control effort and the spillover energyof piezo-electric actuators in adaptive truss structures, optimal placementstrategies developed in conjunction with the Independent Modal Space Con- trol method are presented. Eigenvectors consisting not only of nodal dis- placements but also of electric potentials are used for the optimal actuatorplacement calculation. The method is illustrated by numerical examples.
