Neural network control design considerations for the active damping of a smart beam

Piotr Cupiał, Łukasz Łacny
In this study, possible options for the active damping of a smart beam with piezoelectric patches using neural network control algorithm, are presented. The algorithms used for the control are Neural Direct Inverse and Feedback Linearisation (NARMA-L2). Additionally, several possible modifications used for the purpose of improving the control, such as different values of control gain or sampling time of the training data, as well as step-wise control are tested.
