In this research a broadband passive vibration control technique using a semi-active circuit is presented. A digitally tunable RL shunt circuit and a semi-active mode identifier are developed using 8-bit CMOS microcontrollers to control multiple vibratory modes in a mechanical system. In order to increase the adaptability of the controller, the effects of additional capacitors in the circuit are investigated. The governing equations for the coupled electro-mechanical system are introduced using Hamilton’s Principle and finite element analysis. The system is verified experimentally using and the simulation and experimental results are provided in multiple formats.
