Paper to be presented at CCC’2012 conference

A FOMCON project related paper will be presented this summer at the 31st Chinese Control Conference held in Hefei, China. The paper is entitled “A Flexible MATLAB Tool for Optimal Fractional-order PID Controller Design Subject to Specifications”. The paper deals with the issues of implementation of the PI$^{\lambda}$D$^{\mu}$-controller parameter optimization for linear and nonlinear plants. Presenter is once again Aleksei Tepljakov.

Paper abstract: In this paper, we present a flexible optimization tool suitable for fractional-order PID controller design with respect to given design specifications. Fractional-order controllers are based on the rapidly evolving scientific field called fractional-order calculus. Its concepts are applicable in solving many scientific and engineering problems, including robust control system design. The fractional PID is a natural evolution of the conventional PID controller and as such new tuning strategies are now possible due to enhanced accuracy of the fractional-order models. The presented tool, which is a part of FOMCON — a MATLAB fractional-order calculus oriented toolbox, — uses numerical optimization methods to carry out the tuning and obtain a controller for a chosen plant to be controlled, which can either be a fractional-order plant or an integer-order plant.

    Hi, I am new to Fractional Control. I have started with basic of Fractional Calculus.

    Could you please suggest some area of Fractional Control in which work to be done?

    Also, I have few ideas like Closed loop Identification through FC?

    Please give your suggestion and guide me as Virtual Guide to do research in FC.
