Design of fopid controller for a dc motor using approximation techniques


This paper introduces a study of fractional-order PID (FOPID) controller applied to a DC motor. The idea is to control the motor speed using the FOPID and compare it with the conventional PID controller. Two approximation techniques are employed to realize the FOPID, which are Matsuda and Oustaloup, each with order four. Different responses are depicted for various fractional orders. A specific case study for controlling the speed of a DC motor is investigated with selected fractional-orders. A comparison between the two applied techniques is proposed on the case study to determine which technique can be used to improve DC motor speed control. © 2019 IEEE.
