Collocated controllers have their sensors collocated with actuators. They are a special case of the dissipative controllers, which are designed based on the passivity principle. In this book we select the collocated controllers as a first step to controller design, since they are simple, always stable, and some of their properties are similar to the more advanced controllers described later in this book. A good introduction to the collocated control of structures—but from a different point of view—can be found in the book by Preumont [120].
