Modeling of Active Flexible Suspensions by Mobility and Transfer Matrix
For simplicity and not losing generality, a half-vehicle model with 4 rigid DOFs is presented by mobility or impedance method and transfer matrix technology, which bring the flexibility of the body to the proposed model easily and conveniently, instead of complex differential and state space equations. Based on the multi-objective optimization, a synthetic cost function is proposed to investigate the dynamic characteristics and achieve the optimal control of suspensions. The numerical examples are performed to show the validity and efficiency of the presented model, and some valuable conclusions are also obtained to guide the optimal design of suspensions.
