An impedance-based system modeling technique has been developed to determine the output forces of multiple piezoelectric (PZT) patch actuators on an active structure to produce a known vibration response. In the analysis of the dynamic response of a structure driven by multiple PZT patches, the proposed model includes not only the dynamic interactions between the PZT patch and the host structure but also the impedance couplings among PZT patches. Therefore this approach can apply to a structure with multiple PZT actuators. Furthermore, the bending stiffness and the thickness of a PZT patch that are proved to be important as increases of excitation frequency are included in the proposed impedance model. Examples are given to demonstrate how to synthesize a known vibration response and how to suppress vibration response at an arbitrary location on structures using this technique.
