The present subject matter relates to systems and methods for active vibration control system speed monitoring and control in which a speed protection monitor configured to receive index pulses as inputs to monitor the speed of one or more force generators. A rotary actuator control system can be connected in communication with the speed protection monitor and the one or more force generators, wherein the rotary actuator control system is configured to shut down or adjust the speed of the one or more force generators if the one or more force generators are determined to be operating at undesired speeds.

A manufacturing method of a joint panel includes: joining an outer panel to an inner panel by applying an adhesive to an outer edge of the outer panel; performing electrodeposition coating on a surface of the outer panel of the joint panel in which the outer panel is joined to the inner panel; and burning, onto the outer panel, a coating film formed on the surface of the outer panel by the electrodeposition coating. The adhesive used herein is a room temperature curing adhesive that does not flow at the time of the burning.
