Paper to be presented at ACC’2013 conference

A FOMCON project related paper will be presented this summer at the 2013 American Control Conference held in Washington, DC, USA, June 17-19. The paper is entitled “Design and Implementation of Fractional-Order PID Controllers for a Fluid Tank System”. In this work, we design and implement a digital fractional-order PID controller for a system of coupled fluid tanks. Presenter is Aleksei Tepljakov.

Paper abstract: In this paper, we investigate the practical problems of design and digital implementation of fractional-order PID controllers used for fluid level control in a system of coupled tanks. We present a method for obtaining the fractional-order PID controller parameters and describe the steps necessary to obtain a digital implementation of the controller. A real laboratory plant is used for the experiments, and a hardware realization of the controller fit for use in embedded applications is proposed and studied. The majority of tasks is carried out by means of the FOMCON (“Fractional-order Modeling and Control”) toolbox running in the MATLAB computing environment.
