New Methodology for Inertial Identification of Low Mobility Mechanisms Considering Dynamic Contribution
Keywords:Identification, inertial parameters, low mobility mechanisms, vehicle suspension
Knowledge of dynamic parameters of mechanical systems is required in different applications, particularly in the simulation and control problems. In this paper, the standard identification methods are discussed and a new methodology for identification of inertial parameters is raised when the closed chain has low mobility. The methodology includes formulating a symbolic model based on the transfer of inertial properties and a reduction using dynamic contribution indices based on CAD approximations. The new method is applied to the front suspension of an electrical vehicle. After applying the procedure, a model with few parameters that allows accurately reproducing the dynamic behaviour of the system is obtained. A novel methodology has been developed that allows the identification of dynamic parameters in low mobility mechanical systems.
