All-clamped plate structures are usually subject to strong coupling, model uncertainties and system time-delay. To address these challenges, this work proposes a novel vibration control method based on a linear active disturbance rejection controller (LADRC) with time-delay compensation (TDC-LADRC). The mathematical model of the piezoelectric plate is first established based on system identification with an auxiliary variable method. Then ADRC is designed for the delay-free part by a smith predictor with a novel differentiator. An extended state observer (ESO) is drawn to estimate the internal and external disturbances, such as mode errors, higher harmonics and external environmental excitations. Then, real-time compensation is introduced via feedforward mechanism to attenuate their adverse effects, so that optimal vibration suppression performance can be achieved by the proposed controller. Finally, based on NI-PCIe6343 acquisition card, an experimental setup is designed to verify and compare the performance of the proposed TDC-LADRC against the traditional LADRC and the traditional predictor based LADRC (PLADRC). Comparative experimental results show that the proposed TDCLADRC possesses the best disturbance rejection and vibration suppression performance.
