Hybrid Artificial Fuzzy-PID Adaptive Algorithm Design For Industrial Conveyor Lines Speed Synchroniser

[Full Text]



Farhan Salem, Awad M. Aljuaid



Conveyer line, speed control, speed synchronization, master-slave control.



In this work, an artificial hybrid fuzzy PID control algorithm is successfully designed and tested, for employing in master-slave motion synchronizing control technique, intended for industrial conveyor lines speed synchroniser , but also can be applied where actions require synchronization with conveyor system motions including in industry, production processes, business and facilities, the algorithm is designed to get a good balance amongst desired system performance and system parameter variations. The overall conveyer system mathematical and simulation models were built by integrating the derived submodels of all subsystems and components including; the main actuator, loads, control unit with algorithm and sensor. MATALB/Simulink environment was used to develop the design; test the submodels and overall system model. Testing the overall system design by subjecting it to different scenarios, including to achieve the needed speed of one conveyer with desired performance, also to achieve and synchronize this speed by the other conveyer, show that the algorithm can result in synchronized motion with fast acceptable response speed, short setting time, and minimum both error and overshoot.
