The operable frequency range of the delayed resonators (DR) is known to be narrow due to stability issues. This study presents a novel approach for DR design with a combined feedback strategy that consists of a delayed velocity and nondelayed position feedback to extend the operable frequency range of the DR method. The nondelayed position feedback is used to alter the natural frequency of the DR artificially while delayed velocity feedback is employed to tune the frequency of DR matching with the undesired vibrations. The proposed method also introduces an optimization parameter that provides freedom for the designer to obtain fast vibration suppression while improving the stability range of the DR. An optimization approach is also provided within the scope of this study. Theoretical findings are verified over an experiment utilizing the active suspension system of the Quanser Company.
