Electromechanical Suspension for Combat Vehicles 950775
The use of electromechanical actuators for an active suspension on a main battle tank is investigated. A novel approach to the development of the active suspension control algorithms is presented along with simulation results to evaluate the electromechanical design requirements. The optimal electromechanical actuator design is described along with simulated performance results for a one roadwheel station electromechanical active suspension. Follow-up plans for the laboratory testing of a single wheel station system are also included.
