Abstract

This paper propose an optimal tuning method for fractional PI controller. The method consist of minimizing Integral Absolute Error (IAE) performance index criterion. An example of application (distillation column) plant is presented to evaluate the proposed method. A comparison with classical PI controller and optimal PI shows that the system under fractional state is robust in terms of transient specifications, maximum overshot, settling and rise times.MATLAB simulation toolbox is used to show the effective of the proposed method.
