Independent modal control technique allows to change the eigenvalues of a system, without changing its eigenvectors. From a mechanical point of view, it means it is possible to modify the natural frequencies and the damping of a n-DoF system, letting modal shapes unchanged. Independent modal control can be profitably used in active vibration control increasing the damping of the system without changing its natural frequencies and vibration modes. A control of this type can improve the dynamic performance, reduce the vibratory phenomenon (and the resulting acoustic noise) and increase the fatigue strength of the system. This work demonstrates how the performance of the control depends on the number and position of sensors and actuators used besides, obviously, on the reduced model used to synthesize the control itself. Finally the paper suggests a simple optimum function to minimize the spillover effects due to unmodeled modes. Theoretical aspects are supported by numerical simulations.
