Abstract
The performance of a single input, single output, individual bladecontrol system, designed to attenuate the helicopter rotor vibration usingpiezoelectric crystals (PZT) embedded in the blade structure, is studied. Theresults indicate that an efficient control of the blade lower damped modes,which significantly contribute to the unpleasant vibration of helicopters,may be achieved with a "smart" adaptive controller.
