SOME OPTIMAL CONTROL TECHNIQUES APPLICABLE TO SUSPENSION SYSTEM DESIGN
The need to develop new suspension systems for vehicles of the future has encouraged the application of modern optimization techniques to such proposed suspension designs as magnetic levitation and air cushion suspension. This paper presents an analytical approach to three suspension optimization problems: (a) the choice of the optimal parameters for a predetermined suspension configuration given a particular application; (b) the choice of the optimal passive suspension configuration for a given application; and (c) the choice of the optimal active suspension configuration for a given application.
