Performance Investigation of H∞ Controller for Quarter Car Semi-active Suspension System Using Simulink

2020 Journal of Information Engineering and Applications  
This paper affords the design and improvement of a semi-active suspension system for an automobile. The main idea is to increase the semi-active suspension system damping vibration of the automobile body even as crossing the bump and sine pavement on the road. This system is modelled for 1 / 4 car system after which the entire system has been simulated using Mat lab/Simulink. It is used to physically simulate the quarter vehicle system of the automobile and have a look at the time domain

The system is designed in contrast to the most of the available suspension systems using a third order hydraulic actuator. The proposed system is compared with H2 optimal controller to test the performance of the system for the control targets suspension deflection, body acceleration and body travel for the bump and sine road disturbances. The simulation result of this studies reveal the efficiency of the advanced H∞ controller for the quarter car semiactive suspension system.
