4 October 1994 Practical product implementation of an active/passive vibration isolation system
Author Affiliations +
A hybrid active-passive vibration isolation system is considered for isolating sensitive payloads from seismic level base disturbances and payload induced force disturbances. Stability robustness requirements justify a detailed investigation of system dynamics, highlighting physical consequences of conventional actively enhanced soft mounting. The proposed `hard- mount' strategy provides desired performance and stability robustness, confirmed by theoretical and experimental results.
