Research on Active Control of Driver’s Seat Suspension System
In order to improve the driver confortness, the 5-DOF analysis mathematical car model with the active seat air-spring suspension system was built. Based on the linear stochastic optimal control theory (LQG), the signal of road’s input as excitation source was used to design the optimal law of this seat active control system. MATLAB simulation programming language was applicated for the response simulation. The results show that the control strategy on the road excitation system has a good applicability on controlling the vibration of the driver’s seat and active seat suspension can more effectively reduce the driver’s vertical vibration acceleration than passive seat suspension.
