K = ξ = ω = with a badly tuned PIDcontroller setting K p = 2, K i = 2, K d = 1 (as a guess solution in the real coded GA based optimization process and the time evolution of ITSE has been shown in Fig. 8. Fig. 8 also shows that the ITSE which is based on a first order integration approaches towards a steady value monotonically as time increases whereas with a low order of fractional integration ( Λ ) the integration no longer remains monotonic function which justifies the fact that the integrand in (31) is changing its shape over time , . A few interesting observations can be inferred from Fig. 8. The t e ⋅ 2 ( ) t curve is always positive but has an oscillatory behavior and it tends towards zero with increase in time. This implies that the process settles down to a steady state value after a transitory period. Now from our concept of integer order integration, which interprets it simply as an area under a curve, we know that it is monotonically increasing if the area is positive as also shown in Fig. 8 for Λ = 1 . But due to the complicated characteristics of the fractionalorder integration, it can be seen that the integrand curves are not monotonically increasing and shows some kind of oscillatory behavior which is not possible with integer order integrals. Also the final value of the fractionalorder integrands vary with time and none of them reach a steady state value like the integer orderintegral. Thus taking the final value of the integral in a finite time horizon for the design of the controller or comparing two designs based on the precept of final values may not be appropriate.
paper with optimal selection of weightingmatrices for handling FO process with time delay, in a compact NIOPTD template. The optimal choice of the weightingmatrices along with the FO differ- integrals of the PI λ D µ controller have been obtained through multi-objective NSGA-II algorithm, based on simultaneous minimization of two conflicting time domain integralperformance indices – ITSE and ISDCO. Thus, the proposed method preserves the state optimality of LQR and at the same time gives a low error index in the closed loop time response while also ensuring stability and efficiently handling the time delay terms of FO process. These improvements enable the control designer to obtain satisfactory closed loop response while also enjoying the benefits of LQR in the optimal PI λ D µ controller tuning. The MOO results in a range of controller parameters lying on the Pareto front as opposed to a single controller obtained by commonly adopting single-objective optimization framework, by satisfying different conflicting time domain objectives. It is shown that there exists a trade-off between the two time domain objectives and an improvement in one performanceindex would invariably result in a deterioration of the other. Thus the designer can choose a controller according to the specific requirements of his control problem. Our simulation results show that the proposed techniques works well even for a highly oscillatory and a highly sluggish FO system with time delay yielding a range of solutions on the Pareto front. For delay dominant plants our simulation shows He’s method and for balanced lag and delay plants Cai’s method perform better, whereas for lag-dominant systems the solutions are comparable. Tuning rules for the five optimal LQR-FOPID knobs have been provided as a function of process parameter – delay to lag ratio (L/T) and fractional exponent of the process (α). Future scope of work may include multi-objective LQRbased FOPID controller tuning for unstable and integrating fractionalorder systems with time delay and extending the concept of FO-LQR to noisy processes using FO Kalman filter and Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) technique.
Like, the conventional integer order case, optimal control theory has also been extended for fractionalorder systems with fractional state variables by Agrawal . Shafieezadeh et al.  have investigated the effect of fractional powers of the state variables along with the conventional optimal state feedback law. Tricaud and Chen , Agrawal , Biswas and Sen  formulated the fractional optimal control problem with a quadratic performanceindex involving the states and control law. Li and Chen , Tangpong and Agrawal , Biswas and Sen  also proposed similar quadratic performanceindex in matrix form for fractional optimal control problems that has been adopted in the present work. Saha et al.  studied LQR equivalence of dominant pole placement problem with FOPID controllers. Das et al.  studied the proposed the optimum weight selectionbased digital PIDdesign for fractionalorderintegralperformance indices. This paper improvises over the available techniques by coupling the LQR theory with GA based time domain optimal PI D λ µ
In this paper, a new comparative approach was proposed for reliable controllerdesign. Scientists and engineers are often confronted with the analysis, design, and synthesis of real-life problems. The first step in such studies is the development of a 'mathematical model' which can be considered as a substitute for the real problem. The mathematical model is used here as a plant. Fractional integrals and derivatives have found wide application in the control of dynamical systems when the controlled system and the controller are described by a set of fractionalorder differential equations. Here the stability and robustness of fractionalorder system is checked at the different level and it is found that the stability region is large in the complex plane. This large stability region provides the more flexibility for system implementation in the control engineering. Generally, an analytically or experimentally approaches are used for designing the controller. If a fractionalordercontrollerdesign approach used for a given plant then the controlled parameter gives the better result.
Controllers are playing vital roles especially in the assistant of the engineering processes, for example shifting, shaping and lifting. Apart from being an assistant, the controller is especially useful in dealing with the system major uncertainties and disturbances. It is the fact that the practical systems are mostly intrinsically nonlinear. To overcome the existing drawback in the practical systems, high-performance control system is needed to reduce the actual required elements and achieved the desired response, for example, the voltage or power that generates torque to actuate the load or the application. Apart from reducing the actual effort, the high-performancecontroller can perform surprisingly in achieving the desired response even with the parameter changes along with the operation.
In literature some parameters have to been verified and limited in acceptable ranges including overshoot, response time and control precision, the recommended acceptable range for the overshoot is set to not exceed 10% and the control precision to not exceed ±1% ,the response time is depend on the size of the UAV and the quality of actuators used. Due to its simplicity a multiple PID’s were adopted for stabilizing the UAV in hover mode for indoor performing, the role of this controller is to minimize a cost function by adjusting the input value in order to reduce the error between the desired and the measured values .
A method for pre-tuning a multivariable PIDcontroller for a quadrotor attitude and altitude control has been proposed, which is based on LQR/LQG theory, using a modified structure of the LQR, where the state feedback algorithm employs the tracking error vector instead of the state vector. Realistic computer simulations have been carried out using a nonlinear mathematical model of the DJI-F450 quadrotor, considering parametric uncertainty and external disturbances acting at the plant input. Madgwick’s algorithm and a Kalman filter have been used for data fusion and estimating state variables using data from MARG, LIDAR and optical flow camera, which have been simulated using data sheets provided by manufactures. Simulation results show that the proposed tuning algorithm gives MIMO PID controllers which are robust in the face of uncertainties and external disturbances.

Clearly, classical PIDcontroller is a special case of PI λ D μ controller with λ = 1, μ = 1. Classical PI and PD controllers can also be recovered from (1) by proper choice of λ and μ values. It can be expected that the PI λ D μ controller may enhance the systems control performance because of its potential enhanced flexibility. Another advantage of the PI λ D μ controller is the possible better control of fractionalorder dynamical systems. As a matter of fact the PI λ D μ controllers are also more robust than their classical counterparts due primarily to the presence of two extra degrees of freedom . It is pointed out in  that a finite dimensional approximation of the fractionalordercontroller is possible and it should be carried out in a proper range of frequencies of practical interest.
The main thematic of this paper is controlling the main manoeuvers of a tilt rotor UAV airplane in several modes such as vertical takeoff and landing, longitudinal translation and the most important phase which deal with the transition from the helicopter mode to the airplane mode and visversa based on a new actuators combination technique for specially the yaw motion with not referring to rotor speed control strategy which is used in controlling the attitude of a huge number of vehicles nowadays. This new actuator combination is inspired from that the transient response of a trirotor using tilting motion dynamics provides a faster response than using rotor speed dynamics. In the literature, a lot of control technics are used for stabilizing and guarantee the necessary manoeuvers for executing such task, a multiple Attitude and Altitude PID controllers were chosen for a simple linear model of our tilt rotor airplane in order to fulfill the desired trajectory, for reasons of complexity of our model the multiple PIDcontroller doesnt take into consideration all the coupling that exists between the degrees of freedom in our model, so an LQRcontroller is adopted for more feasible solution of complex manoeuvering, the both controllers need linearization of the model for an easy implementation.
In this thesis work, a fractionalorder system is represented by a higher integer order system, which is further approximated by second order plus time delay (SOPTD) model. The represented SOPTD model of fractionalorder system is verified both frequency and time domain gives the approximate representation of fractional-order system. Further, the optimal time domain tuning of fractionalorderPID and classical PIDcontrollerbased on Genetic algorithm. Genetic algorithm is used to minimizing various integralperformance indices. It is observed that the controllerperformance depends on the type of process to be controlled and also on the choice of integralperformance indices. Considering the uncurtaining in system dynamics, a fuzzy fractionalorderPID and fuzzy PID is designed. Simulation results show that the fuzzy fractionalorderPIDcontroller is able to outperform the classical PID, fuzzy PID and FOPID controllers.
it becomes unstable. Uncertainties can arise not only due to load variations in the power system, but there can be significant uncertainty due to modelling approximations or other stochastic phenomena. Hence frequency domain designs are mostly preferred over time domain design from the implementation and operation point of view of a control system. In spite of the importance of AVR in power systems, very few literatures consider a multi-objective formalism. A co-ordinated tuning of AVR and Power System Stabiliser (PSS) has been done in Viveros et al.  using the Strength Pareto Evolutionary Algorithm (SPEA). However, the contradictory objectives considered are the integrated time domain response for the AVR and the closed loop eigenvalue damping ratio of the PSS. This is a coupled time-frequency domain approach and does not address the inherent contradictory objectives in the AVR itself. In Ma et al.  a multi objective problem has been formulated for finding out the optimal solution for coordinate voltage control. A hierarchical genetic algorithm has been proposed for multi objective optimisation and a Pareto trade-off is obtained. In Mendoza et al.  a micro genetic algorithm is used to solve the multi objective problem of finding the AVR location in a radial distribution network in order to reduce energy losses and improve the energy quality. In , a similar problem has been attempted using a multi objective fuzzy adaptive PSO algorithm. However none of these papers consider the inherent design trade-off in the AVR tuning itself, which is one of the main focuses of the present paper.
Abstract: In recent years, the research and studies on fractionalorder (FO) modelling of dynamic systems and controllers are quite advancing. To improve the stability and dynamic response of automatic voltage regulation (AVR) system, we presented fractionalOrderPID (FOPID) controller by employing Genetic Algorithm (GA) technique. We used fractionalorder tool kit a masked fractionalorderPID block in MATLAB programming to implement the P ⋋ controller for any type of system. Comparisons are made with a PIDcontroller from standpoints of transient response. It is shown that the proposed FOPID controller can improve the performance of the AVR in all the aspects.

Debbarma et al.  have suggested a new two-Degree-of- Freedom-FractionalOrderPID (2-DOF-FOPID) controller ended up being suggested intended for automatic generation control (AGC) involving power systems. The controller ended up being screened intended for the ﬁrst time using three unequal area thermal systems considering reheat turbines and appropriate generation rate constraints (GRCs). The simultaneous optimization of several parameters as well as speed regulation parameter (R) in the governors ended up being accomplished by the way of recently produced metaheu- ristic nature-inspired criteria known as Fireﬂy Algorithm (FA). Study plainly reveals your ﬁneness in the 2-DOF- FOPID controller regarding negotiating moment as well as lowered oscillations. Found function furthermore explores the effectiveness of your Fireﬂy criteria primarily based mar- keting technique in locating the perfect guidelines in the con- troller as well as selection of R parameter. Moreover, the convergence attributes in the FA are generally justify when compared with its efﬁciency along with other more developed marketing technique such as PSO, BFO and ABC. Sensitivity analysis realizes your robustness in the 2-DOF-FOPID con- troller intended for distinct loading conditions as well as large improvements in inertia constant (H) parameter. Additionally, the functionality involving suggested controller will be screened next to better quantity perturbation as well as ran- domly load pattern.
Set-point tracking or steady state error reduction is judged usingintegral absolute error. This is tabulated in Table 2. In terms of performance, the proposed method compares favorably with the optimum PI method as reflected in the tabulated IAE index. However, the proposed method is based on simple time domain and frequency response calculations and does not require any extensive optimisation routine. This reduces computational burden when compared with optimal methods like ORA-Optimum PI. In addition, it yields a more robust control system as shown by the ISV analysis in Fig. 3. 8. CONCLUSIONS

Due to the prevalence of pulse encoders for system state information, an all- digital proportional-integral-derivative (ADPID) is proposed as an alternative to traditional analog and digital PID controllers. The basic concept of an ADPID stems from the use of pulse-width-modulation (PWM) control signals for continuous-time dynamical systems, in that the controller’s proportional, integral and derivative actions are converted into pulses by means of standard up-down digital counters and other digital logic devices. An ADPID eliminates the need for analog-digital and digital-analog conversion, which can be costly and may introduce error and delay into the system. In the proposed ADPID, the unaltered output from a pulse encoder attached to the system’s output can be interpreted directly. After defining a pulse train to represent the desired output of the encoder, an error signal is formed then processed by the ADPID. The resulting ADPID output or control signal is in PWM format, and can be fed directly into the target system without digital-to-analog conversion. In addition to proposing an architecture for the ADPID, rules are presented to enable control engineers to design ADPIDs for a variety of applications.
