For the purpose of reducing the cost, a control system for a truss structure with a simplified controller equipped with amplifying function alone is proposed. In order to realize a sensor in consideration of system stability, the sensor is provided with multiplication-addition capability and a distributed modal filter capable of isolating multiple vibration modes. Then, a control system is built up to amplify the sensor output through a power amplifier, by using a moment actuator which can exert actuation comparable to that of the velocity feedback for damping the system. Finally, the control system is incorporated to the truss structure and the vibration control effect through direct feedback is studied.
