Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


New formulations of active vibration isolation problems for multiple degree-of-freedom (DOF) systems are presented. A position-tracking approach via partial emulation is proposed to take advantage of the natural dynamics of a particular type of actuator: the electrohydraulic actuator. A specific 2DOF system with nonminimum phase dynamics and a noncollocated sensor and actuator pair is chosen to implement this position-tracking approach. Experimental results demonstrate good vibration isolation performance.
