Cost-Effective Skyhook Control for Semiactive Vehicle Suspension Applications
Skyhook control, which is now widely applied to vehicle suspension control, requires two sensors to measure sprung mass acceleration and relative displacement, respectively. In the practical implementation, these two measurement signals are converted into corresponding velocities; then per the skyhook control policy the velocities are employed to d Full Whitepaper »
