Vpi&sujaiaa Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Large Flexible Structures Experiments in Optimal Control of a Flexible Arm

WITH PASSIVE DAMPING This paper presents a hybrid active and passive control scheme for control ling the motion of a lightweight flexible arm. A straightforward developement of LaGrange's equations using a series expansion of assumed flexible modes provides a time domain model for contro11er design. The active controller design was approached as a steady… CONTINUE READING
