Automation and Control Engineering #38: Modeling and Control of Vibration in Mechanical Systemsby Chunling Du
Synopses & Reviews
From the ox carts and pottery wheels the spacecrafts and disk drives, efficiency and quality has always been dependent on the engineer 's ability to anticipate and control the effects of vibration. And while progress in negating the noise, wear, and inefficiency caused by vibration has been made, more is needed.
Modeling and Control of Vibration in Mechanical Systems answers the essential needs of practitioners in systems and control with the most comprehensive resource available on the subject.
Written as a reference for those working in high precision systems, this uniquely accessible volume:
The modern world 's ever-growing spectra of sophisticated engineering systems such as hard disk drives, aeronautic systems, and manufacturing systems have little tolerance for unanticipated vibration of even the slightest magnitude. Accordingly, vibration control continues to draw intensive focus from top control engineers and modelers. This resource demonstrates the remarkable results of that focus to date, and most importantly gives today 's researchers the technology that they need to build upon into the future.
Chunling Du is currently researching modeling and advanced servo control of hard disk drives at the Data Storage Institute in Singapore. Lihua Xie is the Director of the Centre for Intelligent Machines and a professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

This volume demonstrates the use of advanced control theory to address vibration-related problems in mechanical systems. With particular emphasis on vibration control in high precision positioning systems such as hard disk drives, this book also covers a wide range of applications within automotive, aerospace, aeronautical, and manufacturing engineering. The text introduces various techniques for modeling friction and vibrations in mechanical systems and then demonstrates how to achieve advanced control for vibration rejection and friction compensation. The algorithms used in the book have been implemented on drives for systems developed at the Data Storage Institute.
This book provides a clear understanding of the characteristics of vibrations, their effects on system stability and performance, techniques for rejecting vibrations of different frequency ranges and their limitations. It highlights vibration modelling and control techniques in high precision systems, using examples to demonstrate the techniques. The book includes the latest results in vibration modelling and advanced control design for vibration attenuation in mechanical actuation systems to achieve high precision positioning performance. The theory and principles of control design are elaborated in detail, allowing readers to obtain solutions with the help of MATLAB and Simulink.
