Paper Abstract

This paper presents control characteristics of a semi-active magneto-rheological (MR) fluid damper for a passenger vehicle. A cylindrical MR damper is devised and its governing equation is derived. After verifying that the damping force of the MR damper can be continuously tuned by the intensity of the magnetic field, PID controller is employed to achieve the desired damping force. The proposed MR damper is then applied to a full-car model and performance characteristics of the full-car such as vertical acceleration of the body are evaluated via hardware-in-the-loop-simulation (HILS).
