Active Vibration Control of Smart Hull Structure Using Piezoelectric Composite Actuators
In this paper, active vibration control performance of the smart hull structure with Macro-Fiber Composite (MFC) is evaluated. The governing equations of motion of the hull structure with MFC actuators are derived based on the classical Donnell-Mushtari shell theory. Subsequently, modal characteristics are investigated and compared with the results obtained from finite element analysis and experiment. The governing equations of vibration control system are then established and expressed in the state space form. Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) control algorithm is designed in order to effectively and actively control the imposed vibration. The controller is experimentally realized and control performances are evaluated.
