The mode shapes and natural frequencies of the first three modes of the rotor predicted using a beam model.
Grahic Jump Location
The global vibration level, when the global vibration level is the cost function, using actuator 1, actuator 2 and then both actuators.
Grahic Jump Location
The global vibration level when actuator 1 is used. The two cases shown are with error sensor 1 and then with both error sensors used as part of the cost function.
Grahic Jump Location
The mode shapes and natural frequencies for the first three modes of the rotor for the three different experimental mass configurations.

Grahic Jump Location
The measured vibration level at the four measurement sensors S1, S2, S3 and S4 for case 1. Huge reductions in the vibration level at the error sensors (S1 and S2) were achieved (48 dB or 250 fold reduction).
