Robust guaranteed performance PID controller design for non-minimum phase plants
Štefan Bucz – Alena Kozáková – Vojtech Veselý
The paper presents a new original robust PID design method for non-minimum phase plants to achieve closed-loop performance prescribed by the process technologist in terms of settling time treg and maximum overshoot, respectively. The proposed design procedure has two steps: first, the uncertain system is identified using external harmonic excitation signal with frequency, second, the controller of the nominal system is designed for specified gain margin. A couple of parameters is obtained from the time domain performance specification using quadratic regression curves, the so-called performance B-parabolas so, as to simultaneously satisfy robust closed-loop stability conditions. The main benefits of the proposed method are universal applicability for systems with both fast and slow dominant dynamics as well as performance specification using time domain criteria. The proposed PID design method has been verified on a set of benchmark systems.
