This paper presents a development of component synthesis vibration suppression (CSVS) method for control of flexible structures. The proposed method eliminates unwanted flexible modes of vibration while achieving the desired rigid body motion. The robustness to uncertainties of dynamic modeling parameters is analyzed. Unlike traditional input shaping, in which a numerical optimization is used, design for CSVS commands is based on analytic methodology and is relatively easy to implement. A case study is performed on a time-fuel optimal control strategy using constant amplitude reaction jet thrusters. Both simulation and experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
