Biochemical Reactor, PID, PSO, Scheduling

This paper addresses an improved PSO algorithm based PID controller tuning for a model biochemical reactor. Biochemical reactor is a highly nonlinear process and exhibits multiple steady states. To increase the productivity and to achieve the required performance, it is necessary to use optimised PID controller parameters. The work presented in this article, deals with the I-PD based controller design using PSO algorithm in order to minimise the effect of proportional and derivative kick. The gain (set point) scheduling is simulated with a switching unit controlled by a comparator. The simulation result shows a better performance for set point tracking and disturbance rejection.
