Eitelberg introduced a useful method to recover system performance when a direct tuning of the PID's parameters was prohibited in 1987 . Our work herein proposes the use of adaptive tabu search (ATS)  to optimally tune the input-weight factors according to Eitelberg's. We illustrate the effectiveness of our proposed method via two motor control… (More)
The naïve tabu search (NTS) has been enhanced with two adaptive mechanisms namely back-tracking and adaptive search radius. The proposed search is called adaptive tabu search (ATS). The paper provides convergence and performance analyses of the ATS.
A new hybrid tabu search (HTS) method for solving assembly line balancing problems is proposed in this paper. The tabu search (TS) method is combined with the genetic algorithm (GA) to identify and provide solutions for assembly line balancing problems. With the proposed HTS method, the TS method can well address the number of tasks assigned for each… (More)
An application of the current search (CS), one of the most efficient metaheuristic optimization search techniques, to design the PIDA (proportional-integral-derivative-accelerated) controllers is proposed in this paper. The CS is applied to search for the optimum PIDA controller's parameters. The obtained controllers are tested against nine benchmark… (More)
This article presents new metaheuristics denoted as multipath adaptive tabu search (MATS). The algorithms employ adaptive tabu search (ATS) as the main search heuristics, and incorporate partitioning, sequencing, and discarding mechanisms, respectively. The algorithms are explained in details with their convergence analyses presented. The article also gives… (More)
