Abstract

Frequency-dependent adaptive noise cancellation-based tracking controller (ANC-TC) is a known technique for the stabilization of several nonlinear dynamical systems. In recent years, this control strategy has been introduced and applied for the stabilization of a flexible rotor supported on full-lubricated journal bearings. This paper proposes a theoretical investigation, based on robust immersion and invariance (I&I) theory, of a novel ANC-frequency estimation (FE) technique designed to stabilize a flexible rotor shaft affected by self-generated sinusoidal disturbances, generalized to the case of unknown frequency. A structural proof, under assumptions on closed- loop output signals, shows that the sinusoidal disturbance rejection is exponential. Numerical simulations are presented to validate the mathematical results in silico. The iterative Inexact Newton method is applied to the disturbance frequency and phase estimation error point series. The data fitting confirms that the phase estimation succession has an exponential convergence behavior and that the asymptotical frequency estimation is a warm-up phase of the overall close- loop disturbance estimation process. In two different operating conditions, the orders of convergence obtained by phase and frequency estimate timeseries are = 1, , = 0.9983 and , = 1.005. Rejection of the rotor dynamic disturbance occurs approximately 76% before in the cavitated than in the uncavitated condition, 2 (s) and 8.5 (s), respectively.
