Experimental Study of the Variable Stiffness Vibration Isolator
The traditional passive vibration isolation system can reduce the vibration transmission greatly while the excitation frequency is times higher than its natural frequency. As the external excitation approach its natural frequency, vibration isolator system is invalid. In this paper, a new variable stiffness vibration isolator was designed to solve the low-frequency resonance problem of the traditional isolator by combining toothed electromagnetic spring with passive isolator. Theoretical analysis and experimental results illustrate that this isolator met the design requirements and obtained the no resonance operating characteristic at the low frequency.
