Semi-active (SA) vibration-control systems are those which otherwise passively generated damping or spring forces are modulated according to a parameter tuning policy with only a small amount of control effort. SA units, as their name implies, fill the gap between purely passive and fully active vibration-control systems and offer the reliability of passive systems, yet maintain the versatility and adaptability of fully active devices. During recent years there has been considerable interest towards practical implementation of these systems for their low energy requirement and cost. This paper briefly reviews the basic theoretical concepts for SA vibration-control design and implementation, and surveys recent developments and control techniques for these systems. Some related practical applications in vehicle suspensions are also presented.
