Paper Abstract

By attaching an electromagnetic transducer to a mechanical isolation system and shunting the terminals of the transducer with electrical impedance, we can provide improved isolation performance while eliminating the need for an additional sensor. Simulated and experimental results on a simple electro-mechanical isolation system show that the proposed controller is capable of peak damping and high frequency attenuation.
