Comparative analysis of strategies for a semi-active suspension of a ¼ vehicle

The vehicle suspension isolates the chassis from road irregularities, reacting to forces produced by the tires and the braking torques, always keeping the road tire contact, providing stability and safety. Stability and safety are two antagonistic characteristics in suspension design, when improving one the other is impaired and vice versa. The semi-active suspension is a type of vehicle suspension that can change its stiffness and/or damping in real time depending on the vehicle response to the actual road profile. The On-Off semi-active suspension changes its damping coefficient between two fixed limit values. This work proposes an On-Off semi-active suspension model, in which the damping coefficient changes its values considering the road profile function frequency. A control strategy is proposed in a way to improve performance keeping the same simplicity, without any structural change of the semi-active suspension. On the proposed control strategy one of the damping coefficients is obtained through the linear quadratic regulator (LQR) algorithm, with the aim to set the coefficient from the gain matrix associated to the velocity of the suspended mass. This model is compared to anothers found in literature.
