Reducing Braking Distance by Control of Semi-Active Suspension Book Description:

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This thesis presents a control algorithm for semi-active suspensions to reduce the braking distance of passenger cars. Active shock absorbers are controlled and used to influence the vertical dynamics during ABS-controlled full braking. In today s series cars the active shock absorbers are switched to a passive damping - usually hard damping - during ABS-braking. Several approaches to reduce oscillations of vertical dynamic tire forces are known, implemented and some of them tested in non-braking situations (refer to Yi, Valà ek, and Nouillant). The approach presented in this paper goes a step further by connecting the vertical with the longitudinal dynamics. To influence the vertical dynamics a switching control logic, called MiniMax-controller, is used. It is named after the fact that it changes only from soft to hard damping and vice versa. A control quantity was identified that connects the vertical dynamics with the longitudinal dynamics: the integral of dynamic wheel load. The control algorithm is implemented in a compact class passenger car. Simulations with a quarter-car model have been undertaken as well as tests on a 4-post-test rig, driving tests with defined excitations (like defined obstacles), and test drives on a real road, using a braking machine for reproducibility reasons. It could be shown that it is possible to reduce the braking distance by affecting on the vertical dynamics of a passenger car in general. The amount of reduction depends on the elevation profile of the chosen testing track and on the initial velocity. On a road with an unevenness comparable to the one that is found on a typical German Autobahn, a reduction of typically 1-2%, compared to the best passive damping, was achieved.
