This paper discusses the semi-active control of helicopter ground resonance using magnetorheological (MR) damper. A dynamic model of a MR damper with bi-fold flow mode is built based on the hyperbolic tangent model and experimental data on mechanical properties; and its inverse model is derived for the control. An approximate analytical solution of a linear system is provided and a critical stability area is calculated according to the classical model of ground resonance and the method of determining the linear system stability. Then, Simulations are performed on the helicopter ground resonance model with three semi-active control strategies and the control performance is compared. Simulation results show that the comprehensive performance of the fuzzy skyhook control algorithm is superior to the on-off skyhook and continuous skyhook control algorithms.
