In this article it is shown how the end effector position of a single flexible-link robot can be directly controlled by the angular position of its joint, so that, trajectory tracking in the end effector of the robot is possible by properly designing a reference trajectory for the joint angle. In order to ensure trajectory tracking of the angular position(More)

In this paper the problem of modeling, analysis and unbalance response control of a rotor system with two disks in an asymmetrical configuration is treated. The Finite Element Method (FEM) is used to get the system model including the gyroscopic effects and then, the obtained model is experimentally validated. Rotordynamic analysis is carried out using the(More)
In this paper an algebraic technique for unbalance parameters identification along with an active control scheme for a rotor bearing system are presented. The system has two disks asymmetrically located along the shaft which is supported by a conventional ball bearing at one end and by an active suspension at the other one. The active suspension is based on(More)
