A new approach for active vibration control design of multi-rigid-flexible-body systems based on transfer matrix method for multibody systems (MSTMM) is presented in this paper. The vibration characteristics are computed by solving homogeneous linear algebraic equations. Then, the augmented eigenvector and body dynamics equation are adopted to derive the state space representation by combining modal superposition method. Furthermore, Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) control strategy is employed to design the control law. Compared with the conventional methods, the proposed method has the following features: without system global dynamics equation, high programming, low order of system matrix and high computational speed. Formulations as well as a numerical example are given to validate the proposed method.
