In this paper, the well-known root-locus method is developed for the special subset of linear time-invariant systems commonly known as fractional-order systems. Transfer functions of these systems are rational functions with polynomials of rational powers of the Laplace variable s. Such systems are defined on a Riemann surface because of their multi-valued(More)
Fuzzy inference systems always suffer from the lack of efficient structures or platforms for their hardware implementation. In this paper, we tried to overcome this difficulty by proposing a new method for the implementation of the fuzzy rule-based inference systems. To achieve this goal, we have designed a multi-layer neuro-fuzzy computing system based on(More)
One main approach for time-domain simulation of the linear output-feedback systems containing fractional-order controllers is to approximate the transfer function of the controller with an integer-order transfer function and then perform the simulation. In general, this approach suffers from two main disadvantages: first, the internal stability of the(More)
This paper presents a numerical algorithm for BIBO stability testing of a certain class of the so-called fractional-delay systems. The characteristic function of the systems under consideration is a multi-valued function of the Laplace variable s which is defined on a Riemann surface with finite number of Riemann sheets where the origin is a branch point.(More)
—In this paper, first we present a new explanation for the relation between logical circuits and artificial neural networks, logical circuits and fuzzy logic, and artificial neural networks and fuzzy inference systems. Then, based on these results, we propose a new neuro-fuzzy computing system which can effectively be implemented on the memristor-crossbar(More)
—This paper proposes an effective method for estimating the parameters of double-cage induction motors by using Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm. For this purpose the unknown parameters in the electrical model of asynchronous machine are calculated such that the sum of the square of differences between full load torques, starting torques, maximum(More)
The aim of this paper is to study the (clinical) time-series data of three diseases with complex dynamics: Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. For this purpose, first all of the time series data are embedded in a vector space of suitable dimension and then the correlation dimension of the above mentioned diseases is(More)
In this paper, the nonlinear fractional-order PID (NFO-PID) controller, which can be considered as a combination of the nonlinear and the fractional-order PID controllers, is introduced for the first time. It is shown that the proposed structure, which has eight parameters to tune, provides us with a powerful framework to control complicated processes by(More)
