The implementation of a digital control system for the response of a structure will introduce nonlinearities due to the finite-word-length effects. This paper investigates regions of stability, possible existence of limit-cycles and unstable regions for a SISO digital control system for structural vibrations due to quantizer. A cantilever plate is modeled by the finite element method and controlled by a digital control system.
