In recent years, frequency selective controllers were developed to offer an alternative to the well studied and widely used filtered reference least mean square algorithm. The motivation came from the fact, that many disturbance spectra are dominated by a finite set of frequencies (tones). Hence it was concluded that noticeable reduction could be achieved by just controlling the dominant tones. The main advantages of frequency selective controllers are that stability can be shown easily and the controller is of lower order compared to standard FIR filters. Initially, the here presented controllers were tested in sound experiments and excellent behaviour was demonstrated. Then a vibrating plate test rig was acquired and it was possible to move on to examine the control behaviour for microvibrations. A lump mass was fixed to the plate to create an unbalanced behaviour. Furthermore, 4 piezoelectric components were glued to the plate. The arrangement is, that 2 piezoelectric elements are opposite each other on either side of the plate. Different experimental trials were carried out. It was started with driving one piezoelectric element as a disturbance generator and the use of two more as actuator and accelerometer respectively. Model free and model based controllers were implemented. All controller types achieved an overall attenuation for the whole frequency band of more than 10 dB, not only for the controlled frequencies justifying the approach taken.
