Design and Implementation of Fractional-Order Controller for Fractional Order System

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 188)


In this paper, the fractional-orders of integrator and differentiator in an optimal PID controller, for a first order plus dead time (FOPDT) model, are varied and a comparative study is made on the closed loop responses. In addition a new model based controller design approach is followed for designing fractional-order controllers for a class of fractional order systems.
