For bladed-disk assemblies in turbomachinery, the elements are often exposed to aerodynamic loadings, the so-called engine order excitations. It has been reported that such excitations could cause significant structural vibration. The vibration level could become even more excessive when the bladed disk is mistuned, and may cause fatigue damage to the engine components. To effectively suppress vibration in bladed disks, a piezoelectric transducer networking concept has been explored previously by the authors. While promising, the idea was developed based on a simplified bladed-disk model without considering the disk dynamics. To advance the state of the art, this research further extends the investigation with focus on new circuitry designs for a more sophisticated and realistic system model with the consideration of coupled-blade-disk dynamics. A novel multicircuit piezoelectric transducer network is synthesized and analyzed for multiple-harmonic vibration suppression of bladed disks. An optimal network is derived analytically. The performance of the network for bladed disks with random mistuning is examined through Monte Carlo simulation. The effects of variations (mistuning and detuning) in circuit parameters are also studied. A method to improve the system performance and robustness utilizing negative capacitance is discussed. Finally, experiments are carried out to demonstrate the vibration suppression capability of the proposed piezoelectric circuitry network.
