In this paper the design of an optimal controller using discretely placed collocated sensor/actuator pairs to control the vibration of a plate structure is presented. Three- dimensional finite elements are used to model the smart structure containing discrete piezoelectric sensors and actuators by the use of a combination of solid, transition, and shell elements. Since several discrete piezoelectric patches are spatially distributed in the structure to effectively observe and control the vibration of a structure, the system model is thus utilized to design multi-input-multi- output (MIMO) controller. The output feedback controller is then employed to emulate the optimal controller by solving the Riccati equations from modal space model. An optimal controller design for the vibration suppression of a clamped plate is presented for the steady state excitation case. The reduction in the sound pressure level inside an enclosure radiated from this optimally controlled vibrating plate is also estimated.
