Cosimulation of Active Suspension 2005-01-0984

The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of simulating an active suspension using cosimulation. The vehicle used is a utility truck created in ADAMS/View while the E.C.U. (electronic control unit) is implemented in Simulink for both a fully-active and semi-active controller. The LQR (Linear Quadratic Regulator) is used for the fully-active system while the semi-active system uses a switching law adopted from Karnopp et al. {1}. Nonlinear and linear vehicle models are compared and the influence of suspension bushings is examined. All simulations undertaken are geared towards evaluating the ride capabilities of such systems.
