The aim of the paper is to propose a method of tuning first-principle model of a general-purpose servo-hydraulic test-rig. The servo-hydraulic test-rig dynamics is a significant contributor considering shock absorber vibrational analyses and tests. Therefore, the derived model reproduces the important operational parameters of the servo-hydraulic test-rig applicable in laboratory tests. The paper provides a system identification case study in the time domain based on the experimental data.
