In this study, the Genetic Algorithm (GA) was used to search the 4 modes filter frequencies to be applied to the multiple Positive Position Feedback (PPF) controller. The PPF technique, which makes use of generalized displacement measurements to maximize damping in a specific mode effectively and accomplish vibration suppression was employed as control scheme. However it is necessary to tune the filter frequency of the controller to the structural resonance prior to compensator design. Another disadvantage in the multi mode PPF control is that the lower mode natural frequency is shifted to the low-ward as the effect of the higher mode control by PPF controller. To minimize the effect of frequency shift and search the optimal filter frequencies for the multiple modes PPF controller, the GA was applied. The generally used fitness function of the GA in low modes PPF control, the square sum of sensor voltage output hardly distinguishes the definite difference in higher modes. Instead of it, in this study, the GA with the fitness function as the power spectrum information was performed. As a result of GA algorithm with this fitness function, the optimal filter frequencies of higher modes were found successfully.
