    Abstract

    The possibilities of implementing an active boom suspension is investigated. The performance improvement of an active suspension over a traditional passive one is studied in simulation, and shows a significant improvement. A closed-loop control system involving two ultrasonic distance transducers, a hydraulic actuator and a lead compensator has been constructed and tested in the field.
