Active vibration control (AVC) is crucial for the structural integrity, precision, and speed of industrial machines. Despite advancements in nonlinear control techniques, most AVC techniques predominantly employ linear feedback control due to their simplicity and ability to be designed in the frequency domain. In this paper, we introduce a reset-based nonlinear bandpass filter that uses velocity feedback to improve transient damping of vibrating structures. The approach is motivated from an energy-based mechanistic analysis, which incentivizes the use of reset. A novel feature of our approach is that it works for non-ideal, naturally damped systems, and enables control design in the frequency domain, inline with industrial practice. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this new filter by numerical simulations and experimental validation on a single degree-of-freedom flexure stage.
