PID and filtered PID control design with application to a positional servo drive

Belai, Igor, Huba, Mikulas, Burn, Kevin and Cox, Chris (2019) PID and filtered PID control design with application to a positional servo drive. Kybernetika, 55 (3). pp. 540-560. ISSN 1805-949X

This paper discusses a novel approach to tuning 2DOF PID controllers for a positional
control system, with a special focus on filters. It is based on the multiple real dominant pole method, applicable to both standard and series PID control. In the latter case it may be generalized by using binomial nth order filters. These offer filtering properties scalable in a much broader range than those allowed by a standard controller. It is shown that in terms of a modified total variance, controllers with higher order binomial filters allow a significant reduction of excessive control effort due to the measurement noise. When not limited by the sampling period choice, a significant performance increase may be achieved by using third order filters, which can be further boosted using higher order filters. Furthermore, all of the derived tuning procedures keep the controller design sufficiently simple so as to be attractive for industrial applications. The proposed approach is applied to the position control of electrical drives, where quantization noise can occur as a result of angular velocity reconstruction using the differentiated outputs of incremental position sensors.
