I've become really interested in fully active suspension systems lately; it seems like a good corollary to learning about conventional passive suspension. Now, I don't have a background in control systems or anything like that, so my current understanding is almost nil. One concept I keep coming across is skyhook damping, where a damper (that is attached to the sprung mass?) is fixed at the other end to the 'sky', or inertial space. Could anyone tell me what that really means, or rather, how it functions? I have had a look at a few papers, but most talk about LQR's and different control strategies.
