Heavy truck suspension optimization based on modified skyhook damping control
He, Jie, Chen, Yikai, Zhao, Chihang, Qi, Zhiguo, & Ren, Xiuhuan (2011) Heavy truck suspension optimization based on modified skyhook damping control. International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Systems, 18(2), pp. 161-178.
This paper presents a multi-objective optimization strategy for heavy truck suspension systems based on modified skyhook damping (MSD) control, which improves ride comfort and road-friendliness simultaneously. A four-axle heavy truck-road coupling system model was established using functional virtual prototype technology; the model was then validated through a ride comfort test. As the mechanical properties and time lag of dampers were taken into account, MSD control of active and semi-active dampers was implemented using Matlab/Simulink. Through co-simulations with Adams and Matlab, the effects of passive, semi-active MSD control, and active MSD control were analyzed and compared; thus, control parameters which afforded the best integrated performance were chosen. Simulation results indicated that MSD control improves a truck’s ride comfort and roadfriendliness, while the semi-active MSD control damper obtains road-friendliness comparable to the active MSD control damper.
