A method for minimizing forced harmonic vibration of a rotor-bearing system by the application of external control forces is presented. The frequency of the vibration is assumed known. In cases of mass unbalance or bend in the shaft this will be shaft rotation frequency and can usually be monitored without difficulty. The control forces could be provided by electromagnetic actuators. The control strategy presented does not require any knowledge of the system parameters and, provided the uncontrolled system is stable, cannot destablize the system. Results from a simulation are shown.
