Abstract

This paper develops a genetic algorithm based design automation method for linear control systems. It unifies the design and avoids the need for pre-selection of control schemes. Using this method, best performance is obtained for controllers described by a transfer function. The genetic algorithm encoded in decimal numerals is fine tuned by incorporating a simulated annealing technique for a more accurate search. It is shown that the design can be applied to both linear and nonlinear plants without manual calculations and can include practical constraints imposed upon the performance requirement. This method also allows the step of linearising nonlinear plants to be bypassed.
