A Study on Autotuning Controller for Servo System


This paper introduces a PID Autotuning controller using intelligent neural network control based on relay feedback approach. The proposed controller takes advantage of offline learning, in which the initial knowledge of control system is recognized by the relay feedback approach, and the online learning capability of neural network controller helps the control system respond quickly to the dynamics changes. The robustness and motion tracking performance are validated through simulation results.
