A Variable Structure Model Reference Adaptive Controller (VS-MRAC) is proposed for Active control of vehicle suspension. One DOF quarter car model has been considered. The reference model is a one DOF vibrating system with skyhook damper. The structure of the switching functions is designed based on global exponential stability requirements, and shows perfect model following at a finite time. Sliding surfaces are independent of system parameters and therefore VS-MRAC is insensitive to system parameter variations. Simulation is presented for some road irregularities, and compares to active suspension with fixed structure MRAC, and passive suspension. VS-MRAC shows the best performance on ride and working space
