Design and control of adaptive and active systems : application to noise control, shape control and vibration control

Conception et contrôle de systèmes adaptatifs et actifs : application au contrôle de bruit, de forme et de vibrations

My work concerns on the one hand the design of active structures, mainly based on piezoelectric elements, and on the other hand the computation of robust control laws to control the vibrations in closed-loop. Experimental set-ups have been developed to validate the design methods and the control laws. For this research field, two kinds of applications are targeted :
-  The attenuation of vibrations in cases where they are harmful to the proper functioning of the systems, reduce the lifespan of equipment or increase noise.
-  The generation of vibrations to fulfill functions where vibrations can be used in a smart way (e.g. creating a vibrational environment for test purposes, innovative de-icing systems using resonant piezoelectric actuators).

Design and shape control of adaptive surfaces

As for active vibration control, solutions for shape control have developed with piezoelectric actuators. The main targeted application is the design and control of adaptive telescope mirrors. Another objective is active forming to simplify the manufacturing process.

Design and control of systems for active noise reduction

ISAE is working on acoustic treatments made of tunable acoustics resonators. An innovative system to reduce variable tonal noises has been developed and patented at ISAE. The application of this work is the reduction of noise in motors and turbines controlled at variable speed that are characterized by a noise spectrum with emerging and variable frequencies depending on the operating speed.

Robust MIMO control of mechatronic systems

The applications particularly targeted are robust control of flexible structures with little natural damping. Different kinds of methods are implemented, depending on the applications requirements (passivity based method, structured H-infinity method, CRONE control).
