Model Reduction and Active Control for a Flexible Plate
The internal balance technique is effective for model reduction in flexible structures, especially those with dense frequencies. However, due to the difficulty in extracting the internal balance modal coordinates from the physical sensor readings, research so far on this topic has been mostly theoretic and little on experiment or engineering applications. This paper, by working on a DSP TMS320F2812-based experiment system with a flexible plate and bringing forward an approximating approach to accessing the internal balance modal coordinates, studies the internal balance method theoretically as well as experimentally, and further designs an active controller based on the reduced model. Simulation and test results have proven the proposed approximating approach feasible and effective, and the designed controller successful in restraining the plate vibration.
