Positive position feedback (PPF) control is widely used in active vibration control of flexible structures. To ensure the vibration is quickly suppressed, a large PPF scalar gain is often applied in a PPF controller. However, PPF control with a large scalar gain causes initial overshoot, which is undesirable in many situations. In this paper, a fuzzy gain tuner is proposed to tune the gain in the positive position feedback control to reduce the initial overshoot while still maintaining a quick vibration suppression. The fuzzy system is trained by the desired input-output data sets by batch least squares algorithm so that the trained fuzzy system can behave like the training data. A 3.35 meter long I-beam with piezoceramic patch sensors and actuators is used as the experimental object. The experiments include the standard PPF control, standard PPF control with traditional fuzzy gain tuning, and PPF control with batch least squares fuzzy gain tuning. Experimental results clearly demonstrate that PPF control with batch least squares fuzzy gain tuner behaves much better than the other two in terms of successfully reducing the initial overshoot and quickly suppressing vibration.
