This paper presents a vibration control methodology that is useful in practical applications where the system to be controlled is difficult to model due to the presence of uncertainties or complex boundary conditions. The impedance control method uses a power flow approach wherein the controller is designed such that power flow into the structure is minimized. This is accomplished by using the dereverberated point impedance function at the actuator location for the design of the controller. The method is implemented and simulated for a cantilever beam with piezoceramic actuators. As a preliminary step towards real-time implementation of impedance control a simple state feedback algorithm is implemented using a dSPACE digital signal processor (DSP) card.
