Simultaneous adaptive positioning and vibration control of a flexible active composite manipulator with two piezoelectric patches and an active strut are investigated in this paper. First, the configuration of the manipulator is described, and then its dynamics is analyzed. An adaptive fuzzy logic control (AFLC) strategy and an independent modal space adaptive control (IMSAC) scheme are proposed for the active strut motion control and for the manipulator vibration control, respectively. In the AFLC, an adaptive input scaling concept is introduced to adaptively adjust the input of a traditional fuzzy logic controller. As a result, an inverse dead zone is gained to compensate the existing strut dead zone and overcome the dead zone effects. In the IMSAC, a novel adaptive feedback control scheme is developed using the adaptive filtered-x algorithm that is commonly used for adaptive feedforward control. Simulations and experiments demonstrate that the AFLC can provide very accurate positioning control with a relative steady-state positioning error of 0.06%, and that the IMSAC raises the damping ratios of the first two modes of the flexible manipulator 10 times and substantially suppresses the vibration induced by the manipulator motion.
