INERTIAL MASS ACTUATORS, UNDERSTANDING AND TUNING
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Engineering, Department of Signal Processing2004 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
The actuators, the error sensors and the control system are central components in active noise and vibration control systems. The actuators produce the secondary forces acting on the structure while the error sensors measure the quantity to be minimized. Inertial mass actuators are used frequently in a variety of applications, e.g. boat engine mounts and airplane fuselages. To tune the inertial mass actuator to fit a certain application or just to understand the manufactures specification it is important to have an understanding of the construction of the actuator and the equations describing it. This paper presents a mathematical model of the mechanical and electrical system for the inertial mass actuator. A mobility analogy is introduced in order to determine how the inertial mass and the spring constant of the suspension effect the resonance frequency of the actuator as well as the output force. Does the mobility of the structure, the actuator is mounted on, effect the produced output force in relationship to the rated force of the actuator? Practical measurement results are presented in order to determine the resonance frequency and output force of an inertial mass actuator manufactured by Metravib in France.
