Abstract

A method is developed for the control of rotor lateral vibration using multiple frequency components. The control strategy uses a generalized algorithm for the real-time calculation of the amplitude and phase of the vibration components. The complex amplitudes are evaluated successively at the controller sample frequency and can therefore be used for dynamic feedback control. Parallel control of all frequency components is achieved using frequency-matched control signals with amplitude and phase dictated by the control algorithm. The strategy is evaluated experimentally using a flexible rotor system with magnetic bearings. The controller gain matrices are calculated from frequency response identification. The controller sample frequency is the rotational frequency, but the vibration frequencies that are controlled simultaneously include harmonics and subharmonics of the rotational frequency. The controller is shown to be effective in reducing rotor vibration arising from various sources and having a number of discrete frequency components.
