Modeling and simulation can be used to predict the effects of replacing one component in a system with another. In this model an active damper is considered as a replacement for a simple passive damper in the driver's seat of a heavy truck.
To run this example, you'll need
Please make a selection:
Replace a simple passive damper with a hybrid active damper.
Compare the behavior of different real and idealized system designs under identical input conditions.
Test an alternative design by creating a drop-in replacement component.
Visualize amplitude frequency response curves by computing the envelope of the response of each system to the chirp input signal.
