This paper proposes an iterative Correlation-based Tuning (CbT) algorithm which guarantees the control system stability throughout the iterations. The new algorithm is based on a Robbins-Monro procedure which ensures the iterative tuning of controller parameters such that to minimize a cost function expressed as the squared sum of the cross-correlation(More)
The paper presents Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy control solutions - PI(D) fuzzy controllers with input and output integration and 2-DOF fuzzy controllers - meant for speed and position control of Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) drives. Simplified models of BLDC drives are used in new controller design methodologies. These models are characterized by second-order(More)
This paper gives a new 2-DOF PI(D) controller structure based on Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy controller and two types of sliding mode controllers for speed and position control of Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) drives. These structures aim optimized set-point responses, good disturbance control behaviors and good robustness with respect to model uncertainties.(More)
The control of output coupled drive systems with a variable moment of inertia is difficult due to the effects of output coupling of control sub-systems, elastic coupling, and variability of plant parameters. Typical examples of such applications include rolling mills, winding mechanisms and electrically driven transportation systems. The paper deals with(More)
This paper gives a simple iterative formulation of Correlation-based Tuning (CbT). A reference model sets the performance specifications of the control system, and the control objective is to minimize the output error, i.e., the difference between the controlled output and the reference model output. With this regard an optimization problem is defined, and(More)
This paper discusses signal processing aspects concerning the iterative experiment-based improvement of the performance of crane mode control systems of inverted pendulum systems. The control system performance specifications are imposed in terms of a reference model, and the objective is to force the output error defined as the difference between the cart(More)
