Model Reference Adaptive Control for Magnetorheological Damper Subjected to High Impact Load
Using the developed hardware-in-the-loop simulation platform for weapon system under impact load excitation and a novel large-scale single-ended MR damper without the accumulator, impact tests for the special designed long-stroke magnetorheological recoil damper were done and its dynamic performances under different impact loads and input current were examined in this paper. Model of damping force was established by using the model reference adaptive control method. Its dynamic performances of MR damper under model reference adaptive control strategies were analyzed by numerical simulations and tests. Experimental results show that the model reference adaptive control method could reduce its peak value of recoil damping force to 27.33% and its peak value of stroke to 48.75%, and its adjustability of damping force could be well applied for its impact resistance design of gun recoil mechanism.
