An investigation is conducted into the performance of passive, semi-active and active electromagnetic dampers. Theoretical models are constructed of the dampers and these are included in two degree of freedom models of the suspension. The passive and semi-active electromagnetic dampers are significantly heavier than commercial hydraulic dampers. In the case of active electromagnetic damper, the reduction in passenger acceleration is 88 percent when compared to passive damper and 61 percent when compared to a semi-active damper. The power consumption is similar to a magnetorheological semi-active damper.
