Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) are largely used in many domains like aerospace or civil engineering. While very simple and robust, their damping capability is proportional to their mass, which represents an important shortcoming. Hybrid-TMDs propose to combine active systems to an optimal passive device. Nevertheless, stability problems can result from this association. In this study, the passivity concept is used to design a control law enforcing the hybrid-TMD to be hyperstable. Consequently, the resulting Hybrid TMD is fail-safe and unconditionally stable. An analysis of the active and reactive powers also illustrates the energy flux in the device and its passive nature. Simulations based on an experimental model show the performance of such system.
