A Semi-Active Suspension System Using Ride Control Based on Bi-linear Optimal Control Theory and Handling Control Considering Roll Feeling 2015-01-1501
New ride control and handling control are developed, and installed in a system using only vehicle height sensor as dedicated sensors and pressure control type semi-active damper.
Bi-linear optimal control is applied for controlling ride comfort control constructed observer which is inputted vehicle height sensor for calculating state quantity then used output of the observer.
Behavior of vehicle was investigated by vehicle experiment and formalized to further improve the feeling of roll generated by handling control and devised and applied semi-active suspension control method which transiently realize the behavior.
Proposed semi-active suspension system not only achieves damping performance as well as skyhook control, but also improves smooth ride comfort and handling performance including roll feeling. In this report, we describe aim, feature and effect of this system.
