Abstract

In this paper a high-complexity finite element structure of the bus model is proposed in the control design of active suspension systems. A significant step of the method is the selection of a reduced-order model by using the relevant frequencies up to 25 Hz from the modal representation of the model. They contain freedoms of motion in the vertical, pitch and roll directions, and moreover, they include the elastic deformations in transversal directions. The control design itself is based on the H/μ method, which guarantees that the controlled system achieves robust stability and meets performance demands. The controlled system is tested by the application of numerical simulations in the time domain. For the study of its robustness different kinds of road excitations will be used.
