Paper Abstract

Piezoceramic actuators are used in tandem with conventional actuator to design control laws for a Timoshenko slewing beam. The equations are presented in an abstract first order form. Feedback laws are obtained in the context of LQR theory. Convergent functional gains are obtained and time responses of the closed loop system are presented. It is shown that the piezoceramic actuators can significantly enhance the closed-loop response of the system.
