Grahic Jump Location
Equivalent structure for the closed-loop system. The controller has the same effect on the flexible rod as the mechanism enclosed in the dashed box.
Grahic Jump Location
Time responses with the remote vibration absorber: (a) θ(l,t) (solid line) and θ(0,t) (dashed line); (b) control input
Grahic Jump Location
Fourth-order controller: a set of positive ks1,ks2, and ms can be determined for each disturbance frequency
Grahic Jump Location
Flexible rod in longitudinal motion: the magnitude and phase of the harmonic disturbance as well as the lumped load are uncertain −JL and me are uncertain constants
