Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the modeling of systems for active structural acoustic control. The finite element method is applied to model structures including the dynamics of piezoelectric sensors and actuators. A model reduction technique is presented to make the finite element model suitable for controller design. The reduced structural model is combined with an acoustic model which uses the radiation mode concept. For a test case consisting of a rectangular plate with one piezo patch the model reduction technique is validated. The results show that the an accurate prediction of both the structural and acoustic response is predicted by the reduced model. The model is compact requiring small simulation times, which makes it attractive for control system design. Finally the control performances for both structural and acoustic error criteria are presented.
