Abstract

In the past, implementation of active structural control strategies employing PC-based hardware has been problematic due to excessive computational times required for processing the measured data and creating appropriate control forces. Recently developed hardware based on dedicated digital signal processing (DSP) chips has offered new possibilities for control algorithm implementation. This paper discusses implementation of active structural control strategies using the Texas Instruments TMS320C30 DSP chip. Experimental verification of the hardware performance is given. Using the DSP hardware, computational time delays are shown to have minimal impact on the control performance for the laboratory experiment.
