Experiments on the vibration control of a flexible structure using FPGA

Abstract (Summary)

The goal of this project is to develop, implement and test experimentally a state-feedback controller for the vibration control of a flexible structure, using an Active Mass Damper (AMD). Based on a previously developed model of the structure, a state-feedback controller with full observer has been implemented in the LabView (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workshop) computational environment using the myRIO FPGA board (Field Programmable Gate Array). Experimental results show that the controller improves the structural response significantly by reducing the amplitude and duration of the response when the structure is subject to random earthquake-like excitations.
