ABSTRACT The goal of this paper is to design a fuzzy proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller to swing up the pendubot and maintain it in an unstable inverted equilibrium position. Different from PID controllers with fixed gains, the fuzzy PID controller is expressed in terms of fuzzy rules such that the PID gains are adaptive and the fuzzy PID controller has more flexibility and capability than the conventional ones. When tuning the fuzzy PID controller, a genetic algorithm (GA) method is proposed, in which the centers and the widths of the Gaussian membership functions, the number of fuzzy control rules, and the PID gains are chosen as parameters to be determined. When defining the fitness function of the genetic algorithm, the concept of multiobjective optimization is used such that the fitness function can be defined in a systematic way. To show the performance and robustness of the fuzzy PID controller, simulation results are presented.

    ABSTRACT: Ant colony optimization (ACO) is one of the swarm intelligence (SI) techniques. It is a bio-inspired optimization method that has proven its success through various combinatorial optimization problems. This paper proposes an ant colony optimization algorithm for tuning fuzzy PID controllers. First, the design of typical Takagi-Sugeno (TS) fuzzy PID controllers is investigated. The tuning parameters of these controllers have physical meaning which makes its tuning task easier than conventional PID controllers. Simulation examples are provided to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents a method for optimal tuning of PID controllers by using simulated annealing optimization algorithm and tries to increase speed and decrease errors in PID controller by adding intelligent techniques to the basic algorithm. The objective of this paper is to reduce errors and minimize IAE, ITAE, ISE and ITSE assessment criteria to be able to obtain a unique step response of the system in its best output tuning by PID controller. This system is not limited to a particular process and is applicable for all plants. In this paper, SMT motion system with constant load torque is used as disturbance for execution of PID controller with this proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the development and real-time implementation of on-line, automatic gain-tuning proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller using the programmable logic controller (PLC) on a heater-furnace system The mamdani-type fuzzy logic controller (FLC) tunes only the PID gains and the structure of the PID is not altered. Thereby the robustness of the pm to linear parameter variations is maintained. With the help of the fuzzy controller PID is made to overcome the nonlinear disturbances that can occur in a real-time environment. The developed controller is implemented on a heater-furnace system and the algorithms are developed using the ladder functions of the PLC. The real-time implementation of the conventional velocity-form PID and the Fuzzy-PID gain tuner are carried out and the results are presented. This approach provides more flexibility to use the control program with those PLCs which do not support ready pm and fuzzy-PID blocks. It is shown that the developed fuzzy tuned PID is able to track the parameter variations quickly than the conventional one with minimum overshoot and faster settling time.
