Pneumatic Proportional Position Control System Based on BP Neural Networks


Article Preview

A PID controller based on Back-propagation neural networks is presented and used to the pneumatic proportional positioning system in this paper. A proportional valve-cylinder without rod system for buffering and positioning, which is controlled by microcomputer, is designed and completed in this paper. The experimental results show that the system gains self-adaptability because of the application of this control method. And the buffering and positioning of the cylinder can be implemented under different working conditions.
