In this study, analysis and design of a half car model in roll plane with passive and active unconnected and interconnected Hydro-Pneumatic (HP) suspension systems are made. An interconnection configuration with a connection between the piston side oil volume and rod side oil volume of the right and left suspensions, respectively, is considered. The performance of the active unconnected HP and interconnected HP suspension systems are compared in terms of ride comfort and handling. Nonlinear mathematical models are developed for each suspension configuration. A state space model with state dependent coefficients is derived using extended linearization to be used in the controller design. A nonlinear control method, State Dependent Riccati Equation (SDRE) control is used for the active controllers. The active controllers are designed to improve the ride comfort and handling, and to control the attitude and leveling of the vehicle. The performances of the controllers are evaluated by time and frequency domain simulations. Comparisons of the active and passive, unconnected and interconnected HP suspension systems with respect to ride comfort and handling are performed to evaluate the relative advantage and disadvantage of each type. The results illustrate the advantages as well as disadvantages of the active interconnected HP suspension system as compared with the other suspension configurations.

Comparison of different active suspension control strategies using half car model
Büyüker, Banu Çiçek; Bayar, Kerem; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2020-12-30)
Among other advances in ground vehicle technology, active suspension systems play an important role in improving ride comfort, handling and road holding vehicles. Ride comfort is affected by vehicle motions, such as body bounce, pitch and roll, but also limiting wheel travel and suspension deflection is important for road holding performance. The main motivation of this study is designing different control strategies for active suspension systems equipped with a linear electric motor and making a comprehens...
