Abstract
An Active Control System is generally defined as a system to which external power must be added to directly drive that system in real time. An active suspension is then a suspension which tries to respond to ground inputs in real time by regulating the force or displacement of a remotely powered actuator. In this report, current developments as well as relevant past work in active suspensions are discussed. Control algorithms are available from literature sources and some of these will be discussed. References are also available describing developmental work of actual active systems, the best known of which is the Lotus active suspension.
