An experimental study for the active vibration control of structures subject to external excitations using piezoelectric sensors and actuators is presented. A simply supported plate and a curved panel are used as the controlled structures in two experiments, respectively. The Independent Modal Space Control (IMSC) approach is employed for the controller design. In order to increase the adaptability, the time-domain modal identification technique is incorporated into the controller to real-time update the system parameters. The adaptive effectiveness of the time-domain modal identification technique is tested by fixing an additional mass on the simply supported plate to change its structural properties. The vibration suppression performances of the controller are 5.7 dB and 10.8 dB for the simply-supported plate with/without the mass subject to a chirp sine excitation, respectively. For the experiment of the curved panel subject to a sinusoidal excitation, the vibration attenuation of the control scheme is 5.0 dB even the control circuit is subject to some noise generated by electrical and magnetic interferences.
