  1. 1. Active Vibration Control of Multibody Systems : Application to Automotive Design

    Author : Claes Olsson; Alexander Medvedev; Stephen Elliott; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active Vibration Control; Vibration Isolation; Feedback Control; Adaptive Filtering; Saturation; Limit Cycles; Multi Body Systems; Modelling; Simulation; Non-linearity; Gain Scheduling; Structure Flexibility; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Active vibration control to reduce vibrations and structure borne noise is considered using a powerful multi-disciplinary virtual design environment which enables control system design to be considered as an integral part of the overall vehicle design. The main application studied is active automotive engine vibration isolation where, first, the potential of large frequency band multi-input multi-output H2 feedback control is considered. READ MORE

  2. 2. Estimation and Control of Resonant Systems with Stochastic Disturbances

    Author : Peter Nauclér; Torsten Söderström; Anders Robertsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vibration control; stochastic control; stochastic systems; feedforward control; Wiener filtering; Kalman filtering; wave separation; unbalance estimation; nonlinear regression; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : The presence of vibration is an important problem in many engineering applications. Various passive techniques have traditionally been used in order to reduce waves and vibrations, and their harmful effects. Passive techniques are, however, difficult to apply in the low frequency region. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards semi-automation of forestry cranes : automated trajectory planning and active vibration damping

    Author : Szabolcs Fodor; Leonid Freidovich; Carlos Vázquez; Anton Shiriaev; Torben Ole Andersen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Forestry; forwarder cranes; semi-automation; slewing actuator; automated trajectory planning; oscillations; inner boom actuator; active vibration damping; frequency estimation; input shaping control technique; H2-optimal control;

    Abstract : Forests represent one of the biggest terrestrial ecosystems of Earth, that can produce important raw renewable materials such as wood with the help of sun, air and water. To efficiently extract these raw materials, the tree harvesting process is highly mechanized in developed countries, meaning that advanced forestry machines are continuously used to fell, to process and to transport the logs and biomass obtained from the forests.

  4. 4. Modelling and Control Methods with Applications to Mechanical Waves

    Author : Hans Norlander; Bengt Carlsson; Torsten Söderström; Jonas Sjöberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automatic control; pole placement; linearization; vibration control; distributed parameter systems; wave propagation; Automatic Control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Models, modelling and control design play important parts in automatic control. The contributions in this thesis concern topics in all three of these concepts.The poles are of fundamental importance when analyzing the behaviour of a system, and pole placement is an intuitive and natural approach for control design.

  5. 5. An impedance approach to passive-active vibration control

    Author : Jonas Svensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hybrid passive-active vibration control; Active control; Euler- Bernoulli theory.; Impedance matching;

    Abstract : The complementary advantages of active and passive vibration control have motivated research concerning hybrid configurations. Previous studies have mainly focused on active constrained layers (ACL). However, investigations pointing towards suboptimal performance of ACL have made it interesting to investigate other solutions. READ MORE
