Abstract

Abstract This paper is concerned with the construction of an active suspension system for a quarter car model using the concept of sliding mode control. The active control is derived by the equivalent control and switching function where the sliding surface is obtained by using Linear quadratic control (LQ control) theory. The active control is generated with non-negligible time lag by using a pneumatic actuator, and the road profile is estimated by using the minimum order observer based on a linear system transformed from the exact non-linear system. The experimental result indicates that the proposed active suspension system is more effective in the vibration isolation of the car body than the linear active suspension system based on LQ control theory and the passive suspension system.
