Vibration suppression is crucial for applications in engineering particularly for aircraft systems. A hybrid control approach comprising a feedforward intelligent command shaping technique inverse-model based PID feedback control is presented in this paper. The proposed augmented control scheme is used to control both the flexible motion and rigid body dynamics of a twin rotor multi-input multi-optput system (TRMS). The advantage of using command shaping is to reduce system vibration. However, it can cause delay in system. Furthermore, performance requirements based on tracking error, rise time, settling time, percentage overshoot and steady state error are often found to be conflicting with one another in most flexible systems. Therefore real-coded multi objective genetic algorithm is employed in this work to compromise the problems and determine a set of solutions for the amplitudes and corresponding time locations of impulses on an extra sensitive (EI), four-impulse sequence command shaper as well as gain parameters for the PID controller. The effectiveness of the proposed technique is assessed both in the time domain and the frequency domain. Moreover, a comparative assessment of the performance of the technique with the system response and unshaped finite step input is presented.
