Active vibration dampers have been gradually used because they have the advantages of reducing the vibration drastically and adaptively. However, one main drawback is the requirement of large amount of energy. Vibration itself is one type of energy and an actuator is an energy converter, so the question arises as to how we can utilize this energy. This paper describes an energy -regenerative-type vibration damper. In this study, electric power is regenerated during high-speed motion of the… CONTINUE READING
