Spinning structures play an increasingly prominent role in modern engineering. In order to suppress the inevitable vibration of a high-speed spinning flexible beam along the longitudinal direction, intelligent vibration controller is investigated. To design an intelligent vibration controller, the original system is reduced first using the internal balance model reduction method. A fuzzy self-tuning PID controller is further designed based on the reduced-order model. The results show that the reduced-order model derived from the internal balance model reduction method is a good approximation of the original system. In addition, the proposed controller is effective in suppressing the vibration and improves by about 22% compared with the traditional PID controller.
