Continuous firefly algorithm for optimal tuning of PID controller in AVR system

This paper presents a tuning approach based on Continuous firefly algorithm (CFA) to obtain the proportional-integral- derivative (PID) controller parameters in Automatic Voltage Regulator system (AVR). In the tuning processes the CFA is iterated to reach the optimal or the near optimal of PID controller parameters when the main goal is to improve the AVR step response characteristics. Conducted simulations show the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed approach. Furthermore the proposed approach can improve the dynamic of the AVR system. Compared with particle swarm optimization (PSO), the new CFA tuning method has better control system performance in terms of time domain specifications and set-point tracking.

Evolutionary algorithms based tuning of PID controller  for an AVR system

Evolutionary algorithms based tuning of PID controller for an AVR system

In recent literature many evolutionary optimization algorithms are proposed for tuning PID controller in the AVR system such as Anarchic Society Optimization [16], reinforcement learning automata optimization approach [17], real coded GA with fuzzy logic technique [18], Choatic ant swarm algorithm [19], Artificial Bee Colony algorithm [20], Hybrid GA-Bacterial Foraging (BF) algorithm [21] and local unimodal sampling algorithm [22]. GA and Ant Colony Optimization techniques are proposed to tune the parameters of FOPID controller in controlling of AVR system. In some of the research papers novel performance criteria has been proposed for optimal tuning of PID and FOPID controller in AVR control system. A novel performance criterion comprises of overshoot, settling time, steady state error and mean of time weighted integral absolute error has been proposed for optimal tuning of PID controller in AVR system using cuckoo search algorithm [23]. A. Sikander et. al, 2018 has proposed a cuckoo search algorithm based fractional order PID controller for AVR system with performance criterion which was proposed by Gaing et. al in 2004 [24]. In this research work, Cuckoo search (CS) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms are proposed to find the optimal parameters of PID controller in the control of automatic voltage regulator (AVR) system with new performance criterion comprises of Integral absolute error, rise time, settling time and peak overshoot. The performance of this new proposed performance criterion is compared with performance of other performance criterion such as ITAE, ITSE, ISE, MSE and IAE. The paper is mainly organized such that section two describes about the Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) system; section three examines the Cuckoo search (CS) algorithm and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms; section four and five concentrate on the application of CS-PID, PSO-PID and conventional tuning method (Ziegler-Nichols) in optimal tuning PID controller for both servo and regulatory control of AVR system. Additionally, section six describes conclusions of the study.

Design of Intelligent PID Controller for AVR System Using an Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System

This paper presents a SNR-PSO PID controller for searching the optimal controller parameters of AVR. In this section, a PID controller using the SNRPSO algorithm was developed to improve the step transient response of an AVR system. Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) algorithm are used in this paper to evaluate existence possibility of optimal value in PID parameters. This algorithm does not require a wide solution space, and the large number of searching and iterations were susceptible to related control parameters. On the other hand, this method has an effective appliance and better result for uncertainties conditions and different operation points. Signal-to-Noise Ratio algorithm has a responsible result in the nonlinear systems optimization. Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) is a measure of the variation within a trial when noise factors present. It looks like a response which consolidates repetitions and reflects noise levels into one data point. SNR consolidates several repetitions into one value that reflects the amount of variation present. There SNR are defined depending on the type of characteristic desired, higher is better (HB), lower is better (LB) and nominal is best (NB). The equations for calculating S/N ratios for HB, LB or NB characteristics are given as follows [19]:

Comparison of PID Controller Tuning Methods with Genetic  Algorithm for FOPTD System

Comparison of PID Controller Tuning Methods with Genetic Algorithm for FOPTD System

GA is an optimization technique inspired by the mechanisms of natural selection.GA starts with an initial population containing a number of chromosomes where each one represents a solution of the problem in which its performance is evaluated based on a fitness function. Based on the fitness of individual and defined probability, a group of chromosomes is selected to undergo three common stages: selection, crossover and mutation. The application of these three basic operations will allow the creation of new individuals to yield better solutions than the parents, leading to the optimal solution. The features of GA illustrated in the work by considering the problem of designing a control system for a plant of a first order system with time delay and obtaining the possible results. The future scope of this work is aimed at providing a self-tuning PID controller with proposed algorithm (Particle Swarm Optimization - PSO) so as to solve the complex issues for real time problems.

GENETIC ALGORITHM BASED PARAMETER TUNING OF PID CONTROLLER FOR COMPOSITION CONTROL SYSTEM

GENETIC ALGORITHM BASED PARAMETER TUNING OF PID CONTROLLER FOR COMPOSITION CONTROL SYSTEM

Many PID tuning methods are introduced. The Ziegler-Nichols method is widely used for Controller Tuning. One of the disadvantage of this method is prior knowledge regarding plant model. Once tuned the controller by Ziegler Nichols method, a good but not optimum system response will be reached. The Transient response can be even worse if the plant dynamics change. To assure an environmentally independent good performance, the controller must be able to adapt the changes of the plant dynamic characteristics. For these reasons, it is highly desirable to increase the capabilities of PID controllers by adding new features. Many random search methods, such as Genetic Algorithm (GA) have received much interest for achieving high efficiency and searching global optimal solution in the problem space.

Sahu et al. [32] have outlined around the design and style as well as effectiveness evaluation regarding Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm based parallel 2-Degree Freedom of Proportional-Integral-Derivative (2-DOF PID) controller for Load Frequency Control (LFC) of interconnected power system process. The planning issue has been formulated as an optimization issue and DE has been currently employed to look for optimal controller parameters. Standard as well as improved aim features have been used for the planning goal. Standard aim features currently employed, which were Integral of Time multiplied by Squared Error (ITSE) and Integral of Squared Error (ISE). To be able to additionally raise the effec- tiveness in the controller, some sort of improved aim operate is derived making use of Integral Time multiply Absolute Error (ITAE), damping ratio of dominant eigenvalues, settling times of frequency and peak overshoots with appropriate weight coefficients. The particular fineness in the recommended tech- nique has become confirmed by simply contrasting the results with a lately published strategy, i.e. Craziness based Particle Swarm Optimization (CPSO) for the similar interconnected electric power process. Further, level of sensitivity evaluation has been executed by simply varying the machine details as well as managing load conditions off their nominal valuations. It is really observed which the recommended controllers are quite powerful for many the system parameters as well as man- aging load conditions off their nominal valuations.

Performance Analysis of ACO Based PID Controller in AVR System

Performance Analysis of ACO Based PID Controller in AVR System

Abstract: AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) plays a key role in generating stations. To maintain voltage stability of the generator the terminal voltage should remain constant all the times. In a large interconnected system manual regulation is much complicated and therefore automatic generation and voltage regulation is necessary. So, to maintain a constant voltage level, Automatic voltage regulators are used at each generating station. This paper presents the MATLAB simulation based on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) technique used for the tuning of the PID(Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controllers which are used for AVR system. Ant Colony Optimization technique is recognized from the behavior of real ants within the colony to find optimum gain value in a shortest time period. In this paper, an attempt has been made to find out an optimal gain values for tuning of PID controller based on ACO algorithm to improve the overall transient performance of an AVR system for the control of terminal voltage following disturbance through MATLAB simulation.

African Buffalo Optimization Algorithm for Tuning Parameters of a PID Controller in Automatic Voltage Regulators

African Buffalo Optimization Algorithm for Tuning Parameters of a PID Controller in Automatic Voltage Regulators

The PID Controller is an example of a control loop feedback technique that is used in engineering, industrial and process control systems. The PID works optimally in electrical, electronic or electromechanical systems that has precise and distinguishable mathematical model. The PID Controller, basically, calculates three separate system parameters: proportional, integral and derivative coefficients. The proportional component of PID computes the value of the very current error. Similarly, the integral component calculates the result of the sum of recent errors while the derivative component is involved with the determination of the system’s reaction based on the rate dynamism of the errors. The weighted sum of the functions of the three PID components is then imported into the control system to regulate the AVR. Some of the different AVR models with input PID controllers are presented in Figures1-4.

OPTIMAL-TUNING OF PID CONTROLLER GAINS USING GENETIC ALGORITHMS

OPTIMAL-TUNING OF PID CONTROLLER GAINS USING GENETIC ALGORITHMS

In the design of PID controllers, Ziegler-Nichols settings give an oscillatory response of the system; hence the parameters found by this method cannot be implemented in the designs as computed. However, it can be used with the genetic algorithm to form possible interval for the controller parameter set. Since determining precise intervals for these gains have not been developed yet, it is wise to use these gains as the first step towards tuning the controller. For example, the lower and upper bounds for the design parameters can be formed around the values found from Ziegler-Nichols method, such as one-third for lower bound and three-fold for the upper bound

The PSO technique can generate a high-quality solution within shorter calculation time and stable convergence characteristic than other stochastic methods [4, 6]. Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) is a population-based numerical optimization algorithm. Until date, BFO has been applied successfully to some engineering problems, such as optimal control, harmonic estimation, transmission loss reduction and machine learning [7,8]. However, experimentation with complex optimization problems reveals that the original BFO algorithm possesses a poor convergence behaviour compared to other nature-inspired algorithms and its performance also heavily decrease with the growth of the search space dimensionality[8]. BF-PSO algorithm combines both BFO and PSO. The aim is to make PSO ability to exchange social information and BF ability in finding new solution by elimination and dispersal, a unit length direction of tumble behaviour is randomly generated.
