Chaos control of a nonlinear oscillator with shape memory alloy using an optimal linear control: Part II: Nonideal energy source
MetadataShow full item record
In Part II of this two-part work, we apply an optimal linear control technique to suppress chaotic behavior in a SMA oscillator, driven by a DC motor with limited power supply (Nonideal sources). Nonideal sources of vibrations of structures are those whose characteristics are coupled to the motion of the structure. Thus, in this case, an additional equation of motion is written, related to the motor rotation. Special attention is focused into the resonance region, when the nonideal excitation frequency is near the natural frequency of the SMA oscillator. Numerical results are presented, which show the efficiency of the method in resonance region. The ideal case, when we do not consider the interaction between an energy source and structure was considered in Part I of this paper.
