Sensorless Active Suppression of Transverse Vibration of Flexible Plate

Ken-ichi Matsuda, Yohji Okada


In rolling processes, flexible steel sheet is supported by rollers and is bound to produce structural vibration. This vibration can cause severe problem to surface finish and affect the quality of the product. To overcome this problem, active vibration control has been proposed. This usually requires both sensors and actuators. The location of sensors and actuators play a very important role in active vibration control. Moreover, a reliable sensor can be very expensive. This paper proposes a self-sensing vibration control using a push-pull type electromagnet to control the transverse vibration of the steel plate. The construction of the electromagnet has two types of coils, namely the bias coil and the control coil. Vibration displacement is estimated by using the mutual inductance change between the bias and the control coils. The estimated signal is proportional to the gap displacement. The proportional and derivative signal of which is fedback to the control coil to control the transverse vibration of the steel sheet. The proposed method is applied to a simple test rig to confirm the capability of the device. The results obtained are showing high possibility for reducing the sheet steel vibration.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
