Concept: Nonlinear portion of signals

can be a more sensitive indicator of a

problem than the harmonic or linear

portion.

Applications:

  • Aircraft flight control actuators
  • Electromechanical system diagnostics and prognostics
  • Helicopter vibration reduction
  • Mechanical equipment fault identification
  • Multi-phase flow sensing
    • Oil/water/gas
    • Gas-solid (coal/air)
  • Container security

Helicopter Active Vibration Reduction

Background

  • The Westland-Augusta EH-101 is the first production helicopter to use active vibration reduction.
  • Active Control of Structural Response (ACSR) is a quasi-linear vibration isolation system.
  • ACSR can only address the “average vibration” from previous rotor rotations, and cannot handle the chaotic variation of vibration.

Phase II SBIR Program

  • Investigate improved vibration control techniques based on Chaotic Control (nonlinear dynamics of structure)
  • Demonstrate control improvements on helicopter structural test stand using flight vibration data as input to structure

EH-101 has been licensed by Lockheed Martin to be the new Presidential helicopter.

Results: 80% reduction in vibration amplitude, close to the limit of controllability for the test aircraft. ACSR reduced vibration by 56%.
