Abstract

Suspension feedback control has been investigated extensively in the last decade for active and semi-active suspension concepts. Various control concepts exist, like the linear-quadratic (LQ) state-vector feedback, the minimal variance principle, sliding mode control, H8 controllers, fuzzy control, etc. The present paper focuses on semi-active suspension via a modulated damper using a predictive nonlinear controller. The controller is optimized after a Pareto-optimum analysis and a post optimization procedure (Nelder-Mead algorithm). Simulation results for a half car model are presented and show a very satisfactory performance with respect to energy consumption and ride qualities for different bump amplitudes.
