Regulation of PID Controller Parameters Based on Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm in Bending Control System
The bending-roll control system has characteristics of time-varying, time-delay, nonlinearity and serious external disturbance, so it is hard to establish precise math model that be applied to control. In view of the problems above, ant colony algorithm is used to tuning parameters of PID controller and concrete step of PID parameters tuning based on ant colony algorithm is given. The simulation results indicate that the method not only improves control performance and dynamic quality, but also has strong self-adapting ability and robustness. It achieved a very good control effect when used in bending control system that proved the correctness and effectiveness of the control method.
