This article applies three different control techniques to the design of a quarter-car semiactive suspension system. The three techniques, originally developed to solve a constrained optimal control problem, are optimal gain switching, discontinuous variable structure control and explicit model predictive control. All of them divide the state space into convex regions and assign a linear or affine state feedback controller to each region. The partition of the state space is computed off-line. During the on-line phase, the controller switches between the subcontrollers according to the current state. All the above techniques gave satisfactory results when applied to the design of semiactive suspension systems.

Abstract

This article applies three different control techniques to the design of a quarter-car semiactive suspension system. The three techniques, originally developed to solve a constrained optimal control problem, are optimal gain switching, discontinuous variable structure control and explicit model predictive control. All of them divide the state space into convex regions and assign a linear or affine state feedback controller to each region. The partition of the state space is computed off-line. During the on-line phase, the controller switches between the subcontrollers according to the current state. All the above techniques gave satisfactory results when applied to the design of semiactive suspension systems. A detailed comparison in terms of computational complexity, performance and simplicity of the design is proposed in the article.
