This paper discusses a control algorithm for active vibration suppression in flexible structures with distributed actuation. This control algorithm employs an integral transformation of the distributed-parameter system such that the transformed system behaves according to a desired second-order partial differential equation in space and time. Furthermore, a neural network is used to learn and perform this integral transformation which can be very difficult to calculate analytically and which has a kernel that is generally nonlinear. Once the system has been transformed, sliding mode control algorithms may be used to yield a closed-loop system which is insensitive to disturbances or parameter variations. An Euler-Bernoulli beam with piezoelectric actuation will be considered as an illustrative example of this particular strategy.
