Precise tracking of the earthquake acceleration profile in the presence of uncertainties is a challenge for the shake table control design. Design and implementation of a fuzzy-sliding mode supervisory controller for an electric seismic shake table with variable payload is addressed in this paper. The proposed controller contains two layers including a PI loop and a fuzzy-sliding mode supervisory controller. The controller is then implemented in the shake table and its performance is evaluated via extensive experiments. The test results reveal successful performance of the proposed controller at robust tracking of two sample earthquakes in the presence of parametric uncertainties.
