Fuzzy Control for Uncertain Vehicle Active Suspension Systems via Dynamic Sliding-Mode Approach Academic Article uri icon


  • 2013 IEEE. This paper investigates the fuzzy control issue for uncertain active suspension systems via dynamic sliding-mode method. The Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy approach is adopted on the background of the varying masses to describe the prescribed nonlinear system in order to achieve the design targets via the method of sector nonlinearity. This paper employs the dynamic sliding-mode scheme to control nonlinear active suspension systems. In the proposed sliding-mode control scheme, the sliding surface function is formed linearly with the system states and control inputs. Then, a fuzzy dynamic term is utilized to construct the sliding-mode feedback controller. In existing results, the sliding mode is achieved and maintained with no consideration of the system perturbations. Thus, sufficient conditions are proposed to make the sliding surface reachable with the existence of the system perturbations to make the augmented system stable. Finally, simulation results are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed schemes.
