Suspension System in Electric Solar Vehicle

Authors(5) :-Mohammed Anwar, Mohd Yousuf Ahmed, Mohammed Riyaaz, Md Shoaib Siddiqui, Mohammed Ahmed

If the suspension is too soft, energy is wasted by absorbing the motion of a car as it travels over bumps. For increased efficiency, most solar cars use a suspension that is stiffer than normal. For this project, the solar car has two front wheels and one rear wheel. The front wheels provide turning, so the front suspension needs to let the wheels turn. The suspension also allows the wheels to move up and down as the car runs over bumps. The type of front suspension for this project is a double wishbone system. It has a pair of an A-frames, one above the other, mounted to the top and bottom of the wheel hub. In order to improve handling and comfort performance, horizontal suspension system in front and vertical suspension system are being developed in our solar car. A suspension system has been proposed to improve the ride comfort. Horizontal suspension system is designed and constructed on the basis of the concept of a four-wheel independent suspension to simulate the actions of an active vehicle suspension system. The purpose of a suspension system is to support the vehicle body and increase ride comfort. The aim of the work described in this paper is to illustrate the application of intelligent technique to the control of a continuously damping automotive suspension system. The ride comfort is improved by means of the reduction of the body acceleration caused by the car body when road disturbances from smooth road and real road roughness.
