1. A power steering system comprising:

  • an electronic control unit operable to determine a set-point value for a damping moment in the power steering system;

    a first sensor connected to the control unit for determining a sign of a steering angle;

    a second sensor connected to the control unit for determining a sign of a steering wheel angular velocity; and

    whereinthe control unit being operable to establish the set-point value for the damping moment with a predefined first damping multiplier when the steering angle and the steering wheel angular velocity have the same sign and with a predefined second damping multiplier when the steering angle and the steering wheel angular velocity have different signs.
