Recently, researchers have proposed active vibration control technique to control undesired vibrations in structures. In this work, procedure of active vibration control is discussed in a simple way. For that, the mathematical model of structure, the optimal placement of sensor and actuator, and control laws of active vibration control are discussed. Finally, vibration control using LQR technique has been applied on two degrees of freedom system to illustrate the active vibration control.
