Abstract

This paper presents the design and experimental implementation of a novel multi-input multi-output (MIMO) control structure using two negative-imaginary damping controllers to damp the first resonant mode and attenuate cross coupling effects between the axes of a piezoelectric tube scanner. The dynamics of the scanner in the lateral and longitudinal axes are identified from measured data and the design of the controller using a MIMO framework is done based on a reference model matching approach. The controller proposed in the paper is able to achieve a bandwidth near to the first resonance frequency of the scanner and the proposed controller is robust against changes in resonance frequencies that are due to load changes on the scanner. Experimental results are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
