Abstract
Passive oil dampers for railway vehicles present a damping and stiffness characteristics, which depend from excitation history. This behaviour is not acceptable for many high-performance applications. A mechatronic approach, able to continuously adjust the damping coefficient according to the operation requirements, represents a very attractive and smart solution. In this paper, a control strategy for semi-active dampers of train vertical secondary suspensions is presented. The controller aims at assuring the maximum available damping at low frequencies, while at high frequencies minimizes the force transmitted to the carbody that excites the bending modes.
