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: Traditional design methods for the guidance and control system of the unmanned aircraft are based on accurate object model, which can not achieve satisfactory effect when the dynamic characteristic shows larger variety during the flying process. In this paper, an improved parameter self-tuning fuzzy PID controller is proposed to maintain good dynamic performance for the guidance loop of unmanned aircraft. The simulation result shows that the control effects of the proposed fuzzy PID controller are better than that of the conventional PID controller, which can maintain the high steady precision of the conventional PID controller, as well as having the advantage of fuzzy control that can improve the dynamic performance considering a wide parameter variation.

    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.
