Zhou, Ronghui, Zolotas, Argyrios and Goodall, Roger M. (2009) Integrated Tilt and Active Lateral Secondary Suspension Control. In: In (STECH'09), International Symposium on Speed-Up, Safety and Service Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems 2009, 16th - 19th June 2009, Niigata, Japan. (Unpublished)

This paper describes a theoretical study on the integration of tilt and active lateral secondary suspension control issues relate to the system performance requirements, controller assessment approaches, modelling process and dynamics interaction analysis. Two dual-actuator control system configurations with classical decentralized controllers are presented. The work aims to improve the performance of a tilt controller based only upon local vehicle measurements by integrating the lateral active secondary suspension with the roll (tilt actuator). The effectiveness of the integrated control is illustrated via simulations and comparisons with previous modified nulling tilting control as well as the commercial precedence equivalent.
