Abstract

Electromagnetic active suspension system is considered to have improved stability and better dynamic response, compared to the hydraulic active suspension system. This paper proposes an electromagnetic suspension system, comprising of a linear switched reluctance motor and a passive spring. The magnetic and electric characteristics of linear motor are studied using FEA method. The sprung mass acceleration and related force applied by the actuator are investigated under different road disturbance. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed active suspension system has good dynamic response and better ride comfort.
