Energy control, recovery and exchange : Vibration control - Smart Structure   

In many areas of aeronautics and transport, the hybridization of active and passive systems is a fast-growing method of improving the reliability of controllers. The main benefits are generally the adaptability brought to the initial passive system, improved performance at much lower energy costs than purely active versions, and operational safety. The mastery of electromechanical transduction systems opens up wide development prospects for these multiphysics hybrid systems. Several hybrid systems have been developed in industrial or academic settings.
