Abstract
A new control scheme composed of two independent stages utilised to achieve precise positioning of single-link flexible manipulators is presented herein. Traditional techniques for the control of single-link flexible manipulators utilise only one actuator and two types of sensor measurement (e.g the angular position of the motor and acceleration or strain measurements) to move the manipulator and in order to damp the residual vibrations produced in the displacement of the manipulator. However, in the proposed control scheme another additionally pair actuator-sensor is utilised to improve the speed and precision of the controlled system. On the one hand a motor and the readings of a rotary encoder are utilised in a first stage to displace the manipulator, using the strain measurements in order to damp the high amplitude and low frequency residual vibrations. On the other hand piezoelectric actuators are utilised in conjunction with displacement measures of the tip of the manipulator in order to damp the low amplitude and high frequency residual vibrations which deteriorate the accuracy of the positioning achieved by the traditional control techniques. Simulation and experimental results are carried out to illustrate these improvements.

Abstract Active vibration control of a flexible beam with piezoelectric pieces on the surface is investigated experimentally using the independent modal space control method, which is able to control the first three modes of the beam independently. A comparison between the responses of the beam before and after control indicates that the modal damping of the flexible beam is greatly improved and the effects of vibration suppression are very remarkable. The dynamic equation of the beam is deduced...

A new approach to a previous passivity-based control scheme of single-link flexible manipulators is presented herein. Such previous scheme achieves precise positioning of the link tip by combining a position angular control of the motor (inner loop) with a link vibration damping (outer loop), which can be designed independently by decoupling joint and link dynamics with a linear strain feedback. Although, precise positioning can be achieved under large tip payload changes, the used inner loop ca...

Abstract This work presents a new methodology for the design of a passivity-based control of single-link flexible manipulators. The control objective is the precise positioning of the link tip under large payload changes, which is achieved by combining a precise joint positioning with a link vibration damping. The main ingredients of the proposed methodology are as follows: a) a linear strain feedback is used to decouple the joint and link dynamics, b) the precise joint positioning is thus simpl...

Abstract In this paper simulation and experimental results of Strain rate feedback for active vibration control of a cantilever beam are presented. The piezoelectric patches are fixed on the surface of the host beam based on the Harmonic and Modal analysis done in a Finite Element tool (ANSYS). The dynamic model of the smart beam for the first two modes is obtained using a System Identification technique. The feedback control algorithm is analyzed and is implemented in real-time using National I...

In this paper, the design of an acceleration sensor based active vibration control for a cantilever beam with bonded piezoelectric patches is studied. The problem of phase hysteresis and time delay caused by the non-collocated sensor/actuator pairs is considered. The system's dynamic model considering the non-collocated placement of the acceleration sensor and the piezoelectric patch actuator is derived. The phenomenon of phase hysteresis and time delay degrades the performance of the control sy...

This paper employs two types of neural networks to control a single-link flexible arm. To train each network, we utilize a gradient-based approach with adaptive learning rate. We first apply the diagonal recurrent neural network (DRNN) to a single-link flexible arm, which is a challenging control problem, in order to investigate the ability of this type of recurrent neural network. We then apply a feed-forward neural network (FFNN) to this problem and perform some case studies for the purpose of...

This work presents a new methodology for the design of passivity-based controls as applied to single-link flexible arms. The objective is the end-point position control with effective vibration suppression. The control scheme consists of two nested control loops (named inner and outer loop) and a linear strain feedback to decouple the motor and the link dynamics. The controller design is based on the passivity relationship existing between the integral of the torque measured at the base of the a...

Input Shaping is a widely used method of suppressing residual vibrations in point-to-point motion of flexible bodies. It is easy to implement and gives good results if the dynamics of the system are known accurately. However, it is not very robust to system parameter variations. Early methods of increasing the robustness incurred a large time penalty. Hence attempts were made to apply adaptive control to increase the robustness of the shaper. These methods met with varying degrees of success. In...

In this paper, a hybrid control algorithm is proposed to control the rotation of a flexible beam while suppressing the beam's vibration. The control law combines an enhanced PD feedback with a nonlinear differentiator to derive a high-quality velocity signal to control the gross motion of the beam, and a vibration control by PZT actuators bonded on the surface of the beam. There are three advantages of the proposed method: (i) the enhanced PD control is model free, and appears to be more robust ...
