Kamal Yavarian, Farid Hashemi, Amir Mohammadian


This paper presents a hybrid approach involving signal to noise ratio (SNR) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) for design the optimal and intelligent proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller of an automatic voltage regulator (AVR) system with uses an adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). In this paper determined optimal parameters of PID controller with SNR-PSO approach for some events and use these optimal parameters of PID controller for design the intelligent PID controller for AVR system with ANFIS.  Trial and error method can be used to find a suitable design of anfis based an intelligent controller. However, there are many options including fuzzy rules, Membership Functions (MFs) and scaling factors to achieve a desired performance. An optimization algorithm facilitates this process and finds an optimal design to provide a desired performance. This paper presents a novel application of the SNRPSO approach to design an intelligent controller for AVR. SNR-PSO is a method that combines the features of PSO and SNR in order to improve the optimize operation. In order to emphasize the advantages of the proposed SNR-PSO PID controller, we also compared with the CRPSO PID controller. The proposed method was indeed more efficient and robust in improving the step response of an AVR system and numerical simulations are provided to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of PID controller of AVR based on SNRPSO algorithm.
