Advanced Control Methods for Adaptive Mechanical Systems Ruhr-Universität Bochum
Advanced methods for the control of adaptive mechanical systems are introduced in the course. This involves the recapitulation of the fundamentals of active structural control and an extension to advanced control. Observer design is introduced as a tool for the estimation of system states. In addition to numerical modelling using the finite element approach, system identification is explained as an experimental approach. Theoretical backgrounds of the experimental structural modal analysis are introduced along with the terms and definitions used in signal processing. Experimental modal analysis is explained using the Fast Fourier Transform. Advanced closed loop control methods involving optimal discrete-time control, introduction of additional dynamic approaches for the compensation of periodic excitations and basic adaptive control algorithms are explained and pragmatically applied for solving problems of vibration suppression in civil and mechanical engineering.
