self tuning controllers


Thread Starter

Stephan Hendrikx

I am a graduation student on the university of Wollongong in Australia and I have to find ways to program a sertain controller in Matlab so I can control a X-Y table.

Can anyone give information about what kind of controllers there are like:
PID, Hibrid Fuzzy P+ID Fuzzy control, neural network controllers? What could be the best one for this application?

Thank you very much.
Simple is best, so a PID or PIV control loop for your controller would do nicely. If the required accuracy is great, some controllers can map out position errors along your leadscrews and compensate for inaccuracies.

Dear Bob Lea

Do you have any idea where I can find algorithms of PID controllers in Matlab to simulate this?

thanks Stephan
