An Enhanced Genetic Programming Algorithm for Optimal Controller Design  [PDF]
Rami A. Maher, Mohamed J. Mohamed
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2013.41013

This paper proposes a Genetic Programming based algorithm that can be used to design optimal controllers. The proposed algorithm will be named a Multiple Basis Function Genetic Programming (MBFGP). Herein, the main ideas concerning the initial population, the tree structure, genetic operations, and other proposed non-genetic operations are discussed in details. An optimization algorithm called numeric constant mutation is embedded to strengthen the search for the optimal solutions. The results of solving the optimal control for linear as well as nonlinear systems show the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed MBFGP as compared to the optimal solutions which are based on numerical methods. Furthermore, this algorithm enriches the set of suboptimal state feedback controllers to include controllers that have product time-state terms.

Yousif I. Al Mashhadany
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2012.31006
Abstract: The design and implementation of a classical control system laboratory based on PLC control system is introduced in this paper. To design and implement the system, two parts must be produced. The first is software for PLC and the second is hardware for experiments related to the programs. The PLC control system used in the design is LS industrial system company GM7-DR40A 24/16 Digital I/O and single Analog I/O module, two photoelectric sensors from Atonic company’: the first with the model BR100-DDT-P, and the second BEN10M-TFR. An approximate sensor with 5-sides is detected, four of CMOS BCD-7-Segment driven by CD4511B, two relays: 2-poles and 3-poles, six voltages and an ammeter measurement, DC motor and 24 VDC power supply and many connecters and pinions. Satisfactory results are obtained by executing twenty four experiments for classical control theory that fulfill the requirements of control theory in undergraduate stage and replace the old experiments executed by PID controller where the practice system is implemented by PLC control now.
Impulsive Control for Synchronization of Lorenz Chaotic System  [PDF]
Wenxiang Zhang, Zhanji Gui, Kaihua Wang
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.512B005
Abstract: Chaotic synchronization is the key technology of secure communication. In this paper,  an impulsive control method for chaotic synchronization of two coupled Lorenz chaotic system was proposed. The global asymptotic synchronization of two Lorenz systems was realized by using the linear error feedback of the state variables of the drive system and the response system as impulsive control signal. Based on stability theory of impulsive differential equation, conditions were obtained to guarantee the global asymptotic synchronization of two Lorenz systems. The theory analysis and computer simulation results validated its effectiveness.

Lingxiao Quan, Wei Zhang, Bin Yu, Liang Ha
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2013.43033

The mathematical model of hydraulic drive unit of quadruped robot was built in this paper. According to the coupling characteristics between position control system and force control system, the decoupling control strategy was realized based on diagonal matrix method in AMESim?. The results of simulation show that using diagonal matrix method can achieve the decoupling control effectively and it can achieve the decoupling control more effectively with the method of not offset pole-zero in the S coordinate. This research can provide theoretical basis for the application of test system of hydraulic drive unit.

Adaptive Control of a Production-Inventory Model with Uncertain Deterioration Rate  [PDF]
Fawzy Bukhari
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/am.2011.29162
Abstract: This paper studied a continuous-time model of a production maintenance system in which a manufacturing firm produces a single product selling some and stocking the remaining. The problem of adaptive control of a production-maintenance system with unknown deterioration has been presented. Using Liapunov technique, the production rate and updating rule of deterioration rate are derived as non-linear functions of inventory level perturbation. Numerical analysis for the system has been presented for a set of parameter values and demand rate.
Control Chaos in System with Fractional Order  [PDF]
Yamin Wang, Xiaozhou Yin, Yong Liu
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2012.36067
Abstract: In this paper, by utilizing the fractional calculus theory and computer simulations, dynamics of the fractional order system is studied. Further, we have extended the nonlinear feedback control in ODE systems to fractional order systems, in order to eliminate the chaotic behavior. The results are proved analytically by stability condition for fractional order system. Moreover numerical simulations are shown to verify the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
Feedback Linearization Optimal Control Approach for Bilinear Systems in CSTR Chemical Reactor  [PDF]
Dexin Gao, Qing Yang, Min Wang, Yongmao Yu
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2012.33031
Abstract: This paper considers the optimal control problem for the bilinear system based on state feedback. Based on the concept of relative order of the output with respect to the input, first we change a bilinear system to a pseudo linear system model through the coordinate transformation. Then based on the theory of linear quadratic optimal control, the optimal controller is designed by solving the Riccati equation and introducing state feedback with state prediction. At last, the simulation results in CSTR Chemical reactor show the effectiveness of the method.
Chaos Control in a Discrete Ecological System  [PDF]
Limin Zhang, Chaofeng Zhang
International Journal of Modern Nonlinear Theory and Application (IJMNTA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijmnta.2012.13011
Abstract: In research [1], the authors investigate the dynamic behaviors of a discrete ecological system. The period-double bifurcations and chaos are found in the system. But no strategy is proposed to control the chaos. It is well known that chaos control is the first step of utilizing chaos. In this paper, a controller is designed to stabilize the chaotic orbits and enable them to be an ideal target one. After that, numerical simulations are presented to show the correctness of theoretical analysis.
Real-Time Debugging and Testing a Control System Using Matlab  [PDF]
Zenghui Wang
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2013.32B012
Abstract: In this paper two methods for real-time debugging and testing of a control system are proposed. The basic instruments used are personal computers, a Visual C++ compiler and MATLAB including the GUI Design Environment, Simulink, real-time workshop, xPC target, and some relevant hardware. For the first method, MATLAB functions are used to build a control system debugging and testing environment. This method is flexible and only one RS-232 serial cable is used. Limited programming is used for the second method and ready-made blocks in MATLAB/Simulink are used to build the simulation environment and communication channel. In both methods, the parameters of the emulation system can be modified online, important graphs can be drawn in real time and relevant data can be easily saved for the later analysis. As can be seen from the presented examples, both techniques are easily realized.
Design of Automatic Irrigation System for Small Farmers in Rwanda  [PDF]
Gasore Geoffrey, Munyaneza Jean de Dieu, Ngendabanga Jean Pierre, Twibanire Aimable
Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/as.2015.63029
Abstract: In Rwanda, agricultural industry depends on seasonal rain, and this has been a great challenge to agriculture in Rwanda. The designed sample of Photovoltaic pumping system is for irrigation on a piece of land, with 100 m2 field fed by underground water tank of 8 meters of elevation collected during rainy seasons. The adapted 100 m2 field is based on the fact that Rwanda is a densely populated country, also is adapted to be used especially in horticulture to increase exportation. In this system, a photovoltaic system is used as a power source; a pump is coupled with electric motor to drive it and hosepipe to convey water to the storage tank. A sensor is used to send a signal to the driver section at the same time sending a signal to the microcontroller that controls the driver unit and the corresponding relay, which switches off the motor when the water level reaches the lowest level.
