At present, regenerative active suspension is more attractive than conventional suspension of road vehicles for the improvement of ride comfort, performance, stability, passenger safety and the reduction of energy dissipation with regenerative energy. In a real application, the energy dissipation results in a reduction of the performance of the vehicle as well as high-energy consumption. This paper presents a hybrid shock absorber model with a modified shock absorber, which combines a hydraulic motor with a generator to recover the energy that would be otherwise wasted from vibrational motion of the suspension and transform it into useful electricity. The instantaneous oil pressures have been evaluated in the inlet and outlet pipelines using different sinusoidal wave excitation. The feasibility of the energy recovery features of this system are investigated by measuring the hydraulic motor shaft speed and the pressures at the inlet and outlet pipelines. The existing structure will be further optimized as future work to improve its performance.
