Piezoelectric materials allow for the manipulation of stiffness and damping properties of host structures by the application of electrical shunting networks. The use of piezoelectric patches for broadband control of vibration using a negative impedance shunt has been shown to be an effective active control solution. The wave-tuning and minimization of reactive input power shunt selection methodologies require the use a negative capacitance. This paper shows that the two theories are comparative and obtain the same shunt parameters. The results of the theoretical shunt selection and simulation are compared to experimental results of tip vibration suppression, spatial average vibration, and reactive input power minimization.
