Drum water level systems show strong disturbance, big inertia, large time delay, and non-linearity characteristics. In order to improve the antidisturbance performance and robustness of the traditional active disturbance rejection controller (ADRC), an improved linear active disturbance rejection controller (ILADRC) for drum water level is designed. On the basis of the linear active disturbance rejection controller (LADRC) structure, an identical linear extended state observer (ESO) is added
more » ... r (ESO) is added with the same parameters as that of the original one. The estimation error value of the total disturbance is introduced, and the estimation error of the total disturbance is compensated, which can improve the control system's ability to suppress unknown disturbances, so as to improve the antidisturbance performance and robustness. The antijamming performance and robustness of LADRC and ILADRC for drum water level are simulated and analyzed under the influence of external disturbance and model parameter variation. Results show that the proposed control system ILADRC has shorter settling time, smaller overshot, and strong anti-interference ability and robustness. It has better performance than the LADRC and has certain application value in engineering.
