This paper reviews work done in the area of Active Vibration Control of Beam by Using PZT patches. Active vibration control deals with the vibration of a structure by using opposite directional force of same magnitude for suppression of cantilever beam. In this paper a cantilever beam is used to study the active vibration control using PZT patches. The smart beam consists of rectangular aluminum beam fixed at one end and PZT patches are used as sensor and actuator. ANSYS 14.2 software is used to derive the finite element model of beam and to find out the optimum position and size. Optimization of position will be carried out by theoretically and experimentally. Then experimental study will be carried out for the various control methodologies for maximum vibration control at optimized position using neural network controller or its Simulink. The experiment should be carried out to place the sensor at top and actuator below the beam and actuator placed above the beam and sensor below the beam using serial plotter or Arduino 1.6.7 software.
