Optimal control of impact machines using neural networks

  • Published : 1995.10.01


A newly developed discrete-time control design method for impact machines is proposed. It is composed of identification and control using neural networks, where the optimal controller with saturationn and no use of velocity measurements is obtained. By computer simulation, the proposed method is demonstrated to be effective: as the training progresses, the cost function becomes smaller, the proposed control is superior to PID control tuned with Ziegler-Nichols (Z-N) parameters; robust performance with respect to uncertainty, disturbances and working time is so good.
