The flow disturbance to a pneumatic vibration isolation table causes periodic fluctuation of the table. In current study, one cycle of flow disturbance is estimated offline using a disturbance observer. The time series data of one cycle estimated disturbance is then stored in the memory of digital signal processor. The program codes are prepared which can detect every cycle of the flow disturbance based on the threshold of table position. The estimated signal is then repeatedly injected from the memory through a compensator to the servo valve to suppress table fluctuation due to periodic actual flow disturbance. The effectiveness of this method is demonstrated by experimental results.
