The laboratory is equipped with systems for Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) implementation of advanced control methods. For active vibration control, the control systems based on piezoelectric actuators/sensors and laser based measurement are employed. Control methods include: robust, optimal, sliding-mode, fuzzy, disturbance-rejection control as well as other advanced control methods. Implementation of the control loops is realized with Matlab/Simulink im HiL-System dSPACE. For model based control, experimentally identified of numerical models are developed and implemented.
