This paper deals with piezoelectric shunt damping enhanced with negative capacitances. A novel electrical circuit layout is addressed, based on the use of two negative capacitances. It is shown that the shunt performances, in terms of vibration reduction and stability margins, are increased as compared with the classical single negative capacitance layouts. Then, the article focuses on the comparison of a simple resistive shunt, enhanced by a pair of negative capacitances, with a classical resonant shunt. It is shown that the newly proposed enhanced resistive shunt can show equivalent performances in terms of vibration attenuation than the resonant shunt, with at the same time an increased robustness to frequency detuning, in the case of mono-modal damping. The broadband control capability of the resistive shunt coupled to the new negative capacitance layout is also evidenced. The main part of the work is analytical, and then the model is validated by an extensive experimental campaign at the end of the paper.
