In this paper, we sought to develop an efficient controller for vibration reduction in a fully clamped plate. We investigated three control methodologies (positive velocity feedback, sliding mode control, and H∞ control) and two types of actuators (an inertial actuator and a distributed strain actuator). These were used to develop five control architectures (the sliding mode controller was not implemented for the inertial actuator). Both theoretical and experimental studies were undertaken with varying results. The best theoretical results were obtained when sliding mode and H∞ control were used in conjunction with a distributed strain actuator. Experimentally, the H∞ controller using the distributed strain actuator outperformed the others.
