Mechatronics in Vibration Monitoring and Control

  • Tadeusz Uhl
Part of the Computational Methods in Applied Sciences book series (COMPUTMETHODS, volume 1)


This chapter deals with methods of vibration monitoring and control based on mechatronic solutions. An innovative, new approach of design and implementation of mechatronic systems is applied to design of smart sensor for operational load measurements. New idea of smart sensors and their application for health monitoring and diagnostics of structures is described. Test of performance of designed and implemented smart sensor is shown. The main advantage of its application is automation of design process focused on virtual and fast prototyping. The second example of application of mechatronic design method is active balancing system for rotating shaft which is carefully discussed. The concept, control algorithms, and prototyping system implementation are shown.
