Control design of semi-active seat suspension systems

Igor Maciejewski, Tomasz Krzyżyński
The paper deals with the control design of semi-active seat suspension systems. A semi-active vibration control strategy basing on the inverse dynamics of a spring or damper element and a primary controller is studied. The optimisation procedure proposed in the paper makes it possible to calculate controller settings and these, in turn, to define vibro-isolation properties of semi-active suspension systems.
