AB - Proportional-Integral-Derivative control system has been widely used in industrial applications. For uncertain and unstable systems, tuning controller parameters to satisfy the process requirements is very challenging. In general, the whole system’s performance strongly depends on the controller’s efficiency and hence the tuning process plays a key role in the system’s response. This paper presents a robust optimal Proportional-Integral-Derivative controller design methodology for the control of unstable delay system with parametric uncertainty using a combination of Kharitonov theorem and genetic algorithm optimization based approaches. In this study, the Generalized Kharitonov Theorem (GKT) for quasi-polynomials is employed for the purpose of designing a robust controller that can simultaneously stabilize a given unstable second-order interval plant family with time delay. Using a constructive procedure based on the Hermite-Biehler theorem, we obtain all the Proportional-Integral-Derivative gains that stabilize the uncertain and unstable second-order delay system. Genetic Algorithms (GAs) are utilized to optimize the three parameters of the PID controllers and the three parameters of the system which provide the best control that makes the system robust stable under uncertainties. Specifically, the method uses genetic algorithms to determine the optimum parameters by minimizing the integral of time-weighted absolute error ITAE, the Integral-Square-Error ISE, the integral of absolute error IAE and the integral of time-weighted Square-Error ITSE. The validity and relatively effortless application of presented theoretical concepts are demonstrated through a computation and simulation example.
