Active control of the axisymmetric vibration modes of a tom-tom drum

Abstract : This paper deals with an application of active control of percussion instruments. Our setup consists of a tom-tom drum with a circular membrane, a cylindrical cavity and a circular rigid wall on which a loudspeaker is mounted. The current applied to the loudspeaker is controlled in order to modify the frequencies of the drum membrane modes. First, a PDE model of the axisymmetric transverse vibration of the tom-tom membrane is developed. Subsequently, the equation is recast as an infinite-dimensional port-Hamiltonian system. The port-Hamiltonian framework enables us to develop a numerical scheme that preserves the power balance and guarantees a stable simulation. Finally, a control law for the loudspeaker current is designed to modify the frequency of the first axisymmetric vibration mode of the drum membrane, using finite-time and passivity-based methods.
