vehicles active suspension control method actuators
In this paper,two key elements of active suspension technology,namely control algorithm and actuator,are reviewed and analyzed in detail. Different kinds of control algorithms are not isolated from each other and can be combined to improve the suspension system and vehicle performance to a greater extent. The research of active suspension actuator has gradually shifted from the traditional air/hydraulic unit to the electromagnetic unit. Through the review and analysis of the above two aspects,it provides reference for active suspension designers and developers.
