In this thesis, an active vibration suppression of a smart beam having piezoelectric sensor and actuators is investigated by designing separate controllers comprising a linear quadratic regulator and a neural network. At first, design of a smart beam which consists of a cantilever aluminum beam with surface bonded piezoelectric patches and a designed mechanism having a micro servomotor with a mass attached arm for obtaining variations in the frequency response function are presented. Secondly, the frequency response functions of the smart beam are investigated experimentally by using different piezoelectric patch combinations and the analytical models of the smart beam around its first resonance frequency region for various servomotor arm angle configurations are also obtained. Then, a linear quadratic regulator controller is designed and used to simulate the suppression of free and forced vibrations which are performed both in time and frequency domain. Parallel to simulations, experiments are conducted to observe the closed loop behavior of the smart beam and the results are compared as well. Finally, active vibration suppression of the smart beam is investigated by using a linear controller with a neural network based adaptive element which is designed for the purpose of overcoming the undesired consequences due to variations in the real system. This thesis study shows that sufficient vibration suppression levels are reached in the smart beam structure through linear quadratic regulator and an artificial neural network based control algorithms via piezoelectric sensor and actuators in the cases where there are some variations in the frequency response function of the structure around its first resonance frequency region.

Active vibration suppression of a smart beam via self sensing piezoelectric actuator
Uğur, Arıdoğan; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz; Volkan, Nalbantoğlu (null; 2009-08-17)
In this paper, an active vibration suppression of a smart beam using self-sensing piezoelectric actuator is presented. The smart beam is composed of a cantilever aluminium beam with four surface-bonded piezoelectric patches symmetrically located both side of the beam. Piezoelectric materials can transform mechanical deformation to electric signal and vice versa. This property of piezoelectric materials enables them to be used as an actuator and a sensor. In self-sensing actuator configuration, the piezoelec...

Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan (2016-11-01)
In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point sensing system, each probe in the sensor array is assigned a non-overlapping spectral interval for frequency shift in response to local mechanical loading around a unique operating resonance frequency in the band of the antenna. Here, it is shown that the antenna is capable of capturing t...
Active vibration suppression of a flexible beam via sliding mode and H ∞ control
Itik, Mehmet; Salamci, Metin U.; Demet Ulker, F.; Yaman, Yavuz (2005-12-01)
n this study, sliding mode and H. control techniques are applied to a flexible beam in order to suppress some of the vibration modes. The beam is a clamped-free flexible structure having piezoelectric (PZT) patches as actuators and a laser displacement sensor for measuring the tip point deflection. The beam is modeled in two different ways for each control algorithm. To implement sliding mode control (SMC), Euler-Bernoulli beam model is used and a finite dimensional LTI model is formed by using assumed mode...
Active Vibration Suppression of a Smart Beam by Using an LQG Control Algorithm
Onat, Cem; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz (2011-06-22)
The aim of this study was to design and experimentally apply a Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) controller for the active vibration suppression of a smart beam. The smart beam was a cantilever aluminum beam with eight symmetrically located surface-bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches which were utilized both as sensor or actuator depending on their location. A group of PZT patches closed to the root of the beam was used as actuators in the bimorph configuration and a single patch was nominated as a s...
