LabVIEW implementation of an enhanced nonlinear PID controller based on harmony search for one-stage servomechanism system

Mohamed Shamseldin; Mohamed Sallam; Abd Halim Bassiuny; Abdel Ghany Mohamed

Volume 10, Issue 1 , September 2020, , Pages 111-123


  This paper presents a practical implementation for a new formula of nonlinear PID (NPID) control. The purpose of the controller is to accurately trace a preselected position reference of one stage servomechanism system. The possibility of developing a transfer function model for experimental setup is ...  Read More

Optimizing control motion of a human arm With PSO-PID controller

Mohammad Hossein Bayati Chaleshtari; Elahe Norouzi; Habib Ahmadi

Volume 7, Issue 1 , August 2017, , Pages 23-34


  Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is the most commonly used system for restoring function after spinal cord injury (SCI). In this study, we used a model consists of a joint, two links with one degree of freedom, and two muscles as flexor and extensor of the joint, which simulated in MATLAB using ...  Read More

A new strategy for controlling wind turbines against sensor faults and wake effects to harvest more electrical energy

Seyed Vahab Shojaedini; Armin Parsiannejad

Volume 6, Issue 1 , December 2016, , Pages 51-64


  This paper describes a new method for harvesting maximum electrical energy in wind farms. In proposing technique, the stochastic process principles are applied for detecting fault measurements of sensors. On the other hand, the wind farm is modeled by using fuzzy concept. Thereby the turbines are controlled ...  Read More

Nonlinear static and dynamic behaviors of a microresonator under discontinuous electrostatic actuation

M. Zamanian; S. A. A. Hosseini

Volume 3, Issue 2 , June 2014, , Pages 145-159


  This article studied static deflection, natural frequency and nonlinear vibration of a clamped-clamped microbeam under discontinues electrostatic actuation. The electrostatic actuation was induced by applying AC-DC voltage between the microbeam and electrode plate. In contrast to previous works, it was ...  Read More

Application of the airflow control by electro-hydrodynamic actuator

R. Mestiri*; F. Aloui; S. Ben Nasrallah

Volume 1, Issue 2 , June 2012, , Pages 69-76


  The technique used to control the airflow is based on the electro-hydrodynamic actuator which is also called plasma actuator. This actuator ensures the airflow control thanks to the electric wind created by the electrical corona discharge. This ionic wind is developed at the profile surface tangential ...  Read More

Variational discretization and mixed methods for semilinear parabolic optimal control problems with integral constraint

Zuliang Lu*

Volume 1, Issue 1 , December 2011, , Pages 29-36


  The aim of this work is to investigate the variational discretization and mixed finite element methods for optimal control problem governed by semi linear parabolic equations with integral constraint. The state and co-state are approximated by the lowest order Raviart-Thomas mixed finite element spaces ...  Read More
