Polytopic Dynamics and Control for Variable Suspension System 2001-01-3266

This study is motivated from the investigation of vehicle suspension system with changeable damping and variant stiffness parameters. Such suspension system can be modeled as a dynamic polytope based on the mapping of affinely changed parameters. According to the polytopic dynamics decomposition, knowledge of linear time invariant system can be applied to each polytope vertex and the time variant system is solved by the polytope convex synthesis method. For time variant vehicle suspension system, the different model structures for control purposes are formulated. A quarter-car is taken as the example for demonstration in observer design and nonlinear control design.
