A theoretical analysis and experimental study have been performed of the vibrations of a single-mass system having a viscous-friction damper involving an electrorheological (ER) suspension whose viscosity and elasticity are adjusted by means of an external electric field. The results show that this ER system provides effective damping of harmful vibrations in conjunction with remote control on a given law (tracking or positioning). The stability is improved under any conditions, since the ER suspension enables one to set specified parameters if the static characteristics alter while reducing the electrical energy consumption by comparison with existing pneumohydraulic systems.
