This work deals with a vibrofeeder provided by an electronic circuit and feedback device which keeps the system permanently in resonance. Analytical results demonstrating the behavior of the vibrofeeder are provided and discussed. For this purpose, nonlinear differential equations describing this self-exciting system are obtained. The performance of our device, attached to an industrial AA model-5 vibrofeeder built by Aylesbury Automation Ltd. (England), and its fitting with the analytical results were conducted. We found that the system reduced about 50-80% of the energy consumption and improved considerably the stability of the feeder under changing voltage of the network.
