Magnetorheological Elastomer Precision Platform Control Using OFFO-PID Algorithm
Advances in Materials Science and Engineering
The magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) is a kind of smart material, which is often processed as vibration isolation and mitigation devices to realize the vibration control of the controlled system. The key to the effective isolation of vibration and shock absorption is how to accurately and in real time determine the magnitude of the applied magnetic field according to the motion state of the controlled system. In this paper, an optimal fuzzy fractional-order PID (OFFO-PID) algorithm is
... lgorithm is proposed to realize the vibration isolation and mitigation control of the precision platform with MRE devices. In the algorithm, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is used to optimize initial values of the fractional-order PID controller, and the fuzzy algorithm is used to update parameters of the fractional-order PID controller in real time, and the fractional-order PID controller is used to produce the control currents of the MRE devices. Numerical analysis for a platform with the MRE device is carried out to validate the effectiveness of the algorithm. Results show that the OFFO-PID algorithm can effectively reduce the dynamic responses of the precision platform system. Also, compared with the fuzzy fractional-order PID algorithm and the traditional PID algorithm, the OFFO-PID algorithm is better.
