Abstract

In part I [1] we dealt with a tuned absorber, which can move in the transversally direction, where it is added to an externally excited pendulum. Active control is applied to the system via negative velocity feedback or its square or cubic value. The multiple time scale perturbation technique is applied throughout. An approximate solution is derived up to second order approximation. The stability of the system is investigated applying both frequency response equations and phase plane methods. The effects of the absorber on system behavior are studied numerically. Optimum working conditions of the system are obtained applying passive and active control methods. Both control methods are demonstrated numerically. In this paper, a tuned absorber, in the longitudinal direction, is added to an externally excited pendulum. Active control is applied to the system via negative acceleration feedback or via negative angular displacement or its square or cubic value. An approximate solution is derived up to the second order approximation for the system with absorber. The stability of the system is investigated applying both frequency response equations and phase plane methods. The effects of the absorber on system behavior are studied numerically. Optimum working conditions of the system are extracted when applying both passive and active control methods.
