During the last years, the research interest in assessing noise and vibration optimization has been addressed on different control typologies, based both on active and passive architectures. Within the paper, some preliminary activities aimed at the realization of a structurally simple, cheap and easily replaceable active control systems is discussed. Under these premises, the paper deals with the assessment of an Enhanced Synchronized Shunted Switch Architecture (SSSA) control architecture, based upon the use of piezoelectric devices, specifically optimized for a cantilver beam structure. Main activities regarded the control system set up and optimization, both under the electronic than the piezo location points of view, and control results under deterministic and stochastic forcing actions. Experimental results have been compared with the numerical one as well as a comparison between the SSSA approach and other active control architectures has been also presented and discussed. Results have shown a good performances of the proposed approach that present also a relative easy implementation if compared with already assessed control technologies.
