For a few decades various methods to suppress the vibrations of structures have been proposed. The objective of the present study is to propose and exploit an effective method to suppress the vibration of cantilever plates like the solar panels of a satellite. Magnetically Tuned Mass Damper (mTMD) is a Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) with Eddy Current Damping (ECD). The present study used magnetically tuned mass dampers to suppress the vibration of the plate. The parameters of a mTMD are designed based on the parametric study of the theoretical model. The results show that the present method is simple but effective in suppressing the vibration of the plate.
