Simultaneous Optimization of Smart Beam Structure for Vibration Control Based on Chaos Particle Swarm Algorithm
A chaos particle swarm algorithm has been used to search for the optimal placement and size of the piezoelectric sensors and actuators (S/As) bonded on smart beams as well as the optimal feedback control gains. The criterion based on the minimization of stored and needed control energy was adopted for the optimization of the control system. The optimal distributions of the piezoelectric patches and feedback control gains based on specific controlled vibration modes have also been put forward. The results showed that the control effect could be significantly improved with optimized distribution of piezoelectric patches and gains.
