LPV control for a semi-active suspension quarter of car-one parameter case uri icon


  • © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2016.The actual semi-active suspension control systems with a balance between comfort and road holding goals are not optimal because in these solutions one goal or the other always dominates in the suspension performance. This paper is centered in a new proposal to control an automotive semi-active suspension to achieve the comfort and maintain the road holding.The output in the control strategy is the electric current. A nonlinear quarter of vehicle model simulation compares and validates the proposal versus different controllers. The controller is designed with the Hâcriteria and the Linear Varying Parameter (LPV) considering the saturation and sigmoid shape of the F-V characteristic diagram. Unlike the solutions in literature, which use at least two scheduling parameters, the proposed LPV controller scheme for a semi-active suspension uses only one scheduling parameter.
