In this article the design and experimental implementation of an observer based model predictive control (OMPC) scheme for active damping of the first two resonant modes of a smart structure is presented. The design of this controller is based on an identified model of the plant. A Kalman filter is used to obtain full state information. The experimental results verify the efficacy of the proposed controller.
