A Hydraulic Semi-Active Suspension Based on Road Statistical Properties and Its Road Identification
AbstractThe existing semi-active suspensions are very expensive and difficult to be popularized. Therefore, the search for the low-cost semi-active suspension has become a hotspot. To reduce the product cost of semi-active suspensions, this study proposed a new hydraulic semi-active suspension system based on road statistical properties and creates an identification method of road conditions. Firstly, the working process of the proposed semi-active suspension was given. Then, the formula for calculating the mean square value of the body acceleration under the running road condition was derived. Based on the formula, the road identification method was created. Finally, the road test was carried out using a test vehicle. The identified road PSD (power spectral density) values are all consistent with the real values. The test results show that the road identification method can effectively perceive the actual road grades. The identification interval with 20 s can meet the requirements of practical applications. The slight fluctuation of the running speed v has little effect on the identification results because of the statistical characteristics of road conditions. View Full-Text
