Fuzzy Neural Networks Control of A Semi-active Suspension System with Dynamic Absorber
For a semi-active suspension design, an important subject is to determine the control law which can achieve good performance both in ride and handling performance. Because of its superiority in non-linear control systems and capability of learning on-line, the fuzzy neural networks (FNNs) control scheme is proposed in this paper for a semi-active suspension system with dynamic absorber. The quarter vehicle model is described by a nonlinear system with three DOF subject to irregular excitation from a road surface and FNNs control scheme is employed. The on-line learning of FNNs to optimize fuzzy inference system is presented. Four kinds of methods, including passive suspension respectively with and without dynamic absorber, semi-active suspension respectively using fuzzy control and FNNs control, are investigated by computer simulation and comparison is made.
