An experimental study on controlled faulty perturbed flexible structures is developed using an active mass damper actuator, where the flexible structure is subject to external perturbation and sensor faults. To attenuate the disturbance effects on the flexible structure, we present three robust controllers: one is based on dynamics LMI control technique design, other is an improvement of the first one but adding a chattering term, and the last one is the second one but with the chattering gain adjusted dynamically. According to experiments, where a flexible two level building with active mass damper (by Quanser), external perturbation, and sensor faults, evidence that the proposed LMI controller with chattering term where its gain is dynamically adjusted presents the best closed-loop system behavior.
