Abstract

Vibration reduction in a harmonically excited 1-DOF beam with one-sided spring is realized by control-ling the system state from a stable large amplitude 1/2 subharmonic response towards a coexisting unstable small amplitude harmonic response using feedback linearization. At the unstable harmonic response no control effort is needed because the unstable harmonic response is a long term solution of the uncontrolled system. To reduce control effort when stabilizing the unstable harmonic response, the stable manifold can be used within the control design because at the stable manifold the system state approaches the unstable harmonic response without control effort. Unfortunately, the calculation of this manifold acquires much off-line computational effort while its usage complicates the on-line control design. Therefore, the stable manifold is approximated by the stable eigenvectors of the monodromy matrix. Due to the local validity of the approximation, a two-stage control approach is used. In the first stage, the system state is controlled towards the unstable harmonic response to reach the region where the stable manifold can be approximated accurately by the stable eigenvectors. In the second stage, the system state is controlled towards the stable eigenvectors and approaches the unstable harmonic response with hardly any control effort
