Improving Lateral Performance of Longer Combination Vehicles – An Approach Based on Eigenstructure Assignment
Paper in proceedings, 2012
Feasibility of eigenstructure assignment for
controlling lateral performance of longer combination vehicles
is investigated. As a sample case, a controller is designed for a truck-dolly-semitrailer combination based on partial
eigenstructure assignment and frequency response analysis.
The results of simulations with a nonlinear vehicle model show
significant improvement in lateral performance of the vehicle
with the designed controller.
