The problem of vibration isolation is investigated from the standpoint of modern control and optimization theory. The proposed optimal model-following suspension design was verified experimentally by means of a microcomputerized suspension model. The experimental results are very encouraging and indicate promising potential application of the proposed scheme to real-world systems. This paper describes the modeling and formulation of an optimal control suspension reference model, and the implementation algorithm of the proposed microcomputerized optimal model-following suspension scheme.
