|Abstract: ||Shock absorbers allow the damping of suspension vibrations, by dissipating kinetic energy.
This energy theoretically can be harvested; however, practical solutions are not easily obtainable.
This paper is dedicated to analyzing and evaluating the vibration energy in a vehicle’s suspension
that is generated by road excitations. Also, it estimates the possible amount of harvested energy
required to diminish accelerations of the vehicle body, the driver, or the passenger center of mass.
The control of damper is realized by optimizing the best damping coefficient for different road
roughness. Analytical results, obtained from the proposed dynamic model of the car, were compared
with experimental data, showing a good coherence between them. These results allow us to evaluate
the amount of energy circulating within shock absorbers and give information about the amount of
the possible harvested energy. There is a very good relationship between energy needed for control
and gained energy|
