Influence of Different Semi Active Control Strategies on the Performance of Macpherson Suspension Kinematic Parameters 2008-01-2596
Suspension kinematic parameters such as camber, caster and king-pin angles as well as track width are important in improving handling performance and stability of a vehicle. Using a new model of the Macpherson suspension system, the effects of different hybrid semi-active control strategies on the performance of suspension kinematic parameters and on improvement of ride quality are investigated. The control strategies considered in this work comprise hybrid skyhook-groundhook, modified skyhook and, passive-skyhook controllers. It is shown that although contribution of these controllers on the improvement of ride quality of the vehicle is similar, they affect the performance of the Macpherson suspension kinematic parameters significantly different. Simulation results are presented and discussed.
