Active vibration control uses sensing and power actuators to attenuate vibrational energy due to external disturbances. Many of these systems are retrofitted into already existing passive ones. As a result allowable relative motions are prescribed, and this influences the performance of the active system. This paper exposes these limitations and shows realistic expectations for two excellent control strategies.
