Design and Test of Magnetorheological Damper with Embedded Controller
Combining with the current development trend of vehicle suspension and damper technology, different standards of MR dampers are respectively developed in this paper in order to solve problems the semi-active suspend engineering application brings, where its structure design of a certain type of MR damper is detailedly analyzed from the point of engineering view. In order to speed up the progress of MR damper development, based on 1/4 suspend hardware-in-the-loop tester, the integrated developing platform for MR damper with embedded controller is designed and developed, in which some key parts are included, such as assistant algorithm of structure design, exploitation tool of speediness testing, communication interface of CAN bus. The integrated developing platform for MR damper with embedded controller is the same with MR product’s exploitation flow. Finally, its hardware and software design of the measuring-controlling unit for MR damper with embedded controller, are introduced, and some test results are also show and analyzed. Experimental results prove that the developed MR damper with embedded controller would have a widely application prospect.
