Smart components are commonly used for their compactness and ability to control the vibrations in an embedded flexible structure. Their relative actuation capabilities can limit the active control efficiency. This paper introduces a nonlinear method to improve their action using independent controllers for flexible modes and for rigid body modes. The… CONTINUE READING
