Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


In this paper the Linear Parameter-Varying (LPV) approach is applied in the modelling and control of vehicle suspension systems. In the LPV modelling the dynamics of the hydraulic actuator is considered. In the LPV modei for control design, both the performance requirements and the model uncertainties are taken into consideration. The trade-off between the performance demands is guaranteed by using parameter dependent gains. Simulation examples illustrate the modelling of a quarter-car model and the control design by using the LPV method.
