Design of a non-linear analog PID controller

Govender, Poobalan January 1997 (has links)
Thesis submitted in compliance with the requirements for the Masters Degree in Technology: Electrical Engineering (Light Current), Technikon Natal, 1997. / In this study we propose an analogue nonlinear PID controller with antiwindup and dead-time compensation to optimise the control of loops experiencing degradation in the control performance as a result of dead-time and saturation nonlinearity. Loops containing a significant dead-time are notoriously difficult to control. The proposed controller optimises the control of loops experiencing the negative effects of saturation and dead-time. / M

A versatile simulation tool for virtual implementation of proportional integral and derivative (PID) controllers

Ramamurthi, Indu 17 September 2007 (has links)
This thesis proposes an interactive software tool that can be used to compute complete sets of Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controllers from knowledge of the plant transfer function/frequency response data. This is based on research results and algorithms developed by Bhattacharyya and others. Until these research results were published, it was not known if a nominal system could be stabilized using PID Controllers, and current PID Controller designs are carried out using ad hoc tuning rules. By using simulations, engineers can best plan for and observe the stabilizing effect each of the variables has on system performance in a realistic environment. The software application developed calculates and optimizes complete stabilizing sets of PID Controllers for a rational Linear Time Invariant (LTI) system, and has been developed for analytical models of plants with and without time delay. Further, these PID Controller sets are optimized to project subsets simultaneously satisfying multiple performance index specifications. Sets of PID Controllers that stabilize a system are also calculated automatically from knowledge of the frequency response of the plant. It allows the user ease of design and the ability to customize the final solution while permitting full control over source parameters. This thesis includes an introduction to the algorithms that have been developed for plant stabilization, a complete description of the graphical user interface, the simulation of the algorithms performed using LabVIEW, and a summary of future work.

Computer aided synthesis and design of PID controllers

Mitra, Sandipan 15 May 2009 (has links)
This thesis aims to cover some aspects of synthesis and design of Proportional- Integral-Derivative (PID) controllers. The topics include computer aided design of discrete time controllers, data-based design of discrete PID controllers and data- robust design of PID controllers. These topics are of paramount in control systems literature where a lot of stress is laid upon identification of plant and robust design. The computer aided design of discrete time controllers introduces a Graphical User Interface (GUI) based software. The controllers are: Proportional (P), Proportional-Derivative (PD),Proportional-Integral (PI) and Proportional-Integral- Derivative (PID) controllers. Different performance based design methods with these controllers have been introduced. The user can either explore the performance by interactively choosing controllers one by one from the entire set and visualizing its performance or specify some performance constraints and obtaining the resulting set. In data-based design, the thesis presents a way of designing PID controllers based on input-output data. Thus, the intermediate step of identification of model from data is removed, saving considerable effort. Moreover, the data required is step response data which is easier to obtain in case of discrete time system than frequency response data. Further, a GUI developed for interactive design is also described. In data-robust design, the problem of uncertainty in data is explored. The design method developed finds the stabilizing set which can robustly stabilize the plant with uncertainty. It has been put forward as an application to interval linear programming. The main results of this research include a new way of designing discrete time PID controllers directly from the data. The simulations further confirm the results. Robust design of PID controllers with data uncertainty has also been established. Additionally, as a part of this research, a GUI based software has been developed which is expected to be very beneficial to the designers in manufacturing, aerospace and petrochemical industries. PID controllers are widely used in the industry. Any progress in this field is well acknowledged both in the industry and the academia alike. This thesis attempts a small step further in this direction.
