Tuning of FOPID (PIλDμ) controller for heating furnace

Amlan Basu, Sumit Mohanty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper is based on the fractional order Proportional-Integral-Derivative
(fractional order PID) which is responsible for the controlling of the output of
the heating furnace. The main objective is to design fractional order PID using
various tuning techniques like Ziegler-Nichols and Cohen-Coon method using
Nelder-Mead optimization algorithm so as to study which technique gives
better results. In this paper, we have also illustrated about the Ziegler-Nichols
method, Cohen-Coon method and also the Nelder-Mead optimization
algorithm as before studying the results obtained from the methods and
algorithms we need to know how the mentioned methods work.
