Extensive investigations have been conducted to study the vibration localization phenomenon and the excessive forced response that can be caused by mistuning in bladed disks. Most previous researches have focused on attacking the mistuning issue in the bladed disk, such as reducing the sensitivity of the structure to mistuning through mechanical tailoring, or design optimization. Few have focused on developing effective vibration control methods for such systems. This study extends the piezoelectric network concept, which has been utilized for mode delocalization in periodic structures, to the control of mistuned bladed disks under engine order excitation. A piezoelectric network is synthesized and optimized to effectively suppress the excessive vibration in the bladed disk caused by mistuning. One of the merits of such an approach is that the optimum design is independent of the number of spatial harmonics, or engine orders. Local circuits are first formulated by connecting inductors and resistors with piezoelectric patches on the individual blades. While these local circuits can function as conventional damped absorber when properly tuned, they do not perform well for bladed disks under all engine order excitations. To address this issue, capacitors are introduced to couple the individual local circuitries. Through such networking, an absorber system that is independent of the engine order can be achieved. Monte Carlo simulation is performed to investigate the effectiveness of the network for bladed disk with a range of mistuning level of its mechanical properties. The robustness issue of the network in terms of detuning of the electric circuit parameters is also studied. Finally, negative capacitance is introduced and its effect on the robustness of the network is investigated.
