The aim of this paper is to develop a decentralized control algorithm on the control of both structure and non-structural equipment simultaneously to overcome the limitations of decentralized control through combining the advantage of wavelet analysis. This wavelet-based decentralized control algorithm will be simulated based on a frame with an equipment isolation system and a magnetorheological (MR) dampers located on the top of first floor numerically. The performance and robustness of wavelet-based decentralized control algorithm as well as the response of primary structure are evaluated and discussed through simulation study to demonstrate the efficiency of proposed control algorithms.
