In this paper, the development and implementation of a novel semiactive suspension control of a quarter-car model using a hybrid-fuzzy-logic-based controller have been done. The proposed quarter-car model can be described as a nonlinear two-degree-of-freedom system, which is subject to system disturbances from different road profiles. In order to implement the suspension system experimentally, the magnetorheological (MR) fluid has been used as an adjustable damper. The MR damper is a control device that consists of a hydraulic cylinder filled with magnetically polarizable particles suspended in a liquid. The MR damper rapidly dissipates vibration by absorbing energy. In this paper, proportional-integral-derivative (PID), fuzzy logic, and hybrid controllers are used to control the semiactive car suspension system. The results show that both fuzzy logic and hybrid controllers are quite suitable to eliminate road disturbances for the semiactive suspension system considerably as compared to the conventional PID controller.
