Study on Intelligent Control Strategy for Semi-Active Suspension System of Tracked Vehicle
Considering the multiple and complicated driving conditions for tracked vehicles and their structural features, a comprehensive intelligent control method to deal with semi-active suspension was proposed based on the principle of magneto rheological damper. One half of the tracked vehicle suspension system is taken as the research object, where analysis is directed to the vertical amplitude, pitch angle and vertical body acceleration response. And the magneto rheological damper was taken as an actuator, the fuzzy control was taken as feedforward and PID control was taken as feedback. The control system model has been established by using of the complex random road output to simulink due to the condition of MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation results show that it is of good real-time control competence, good robustness and high accuracy, etc. Contrasting to passive suspension, some capability parameters such as the body vertical amplitude, pitch angle and the body vertical acceleration of the semi-active suspension system can had been well controlled by using of the intelligent hybrid control method, for exmple, the root mean square value of vertical amplitude decreased by 37.2%，the root mean square value of pitch angle decreased by 45.2% and root mean square value of the vertical vibration acceleration decreased by 38.6%.
