APPLICATION OF FRACTIONAL ALGORITHMS IN THE CONTROL OF A TWIN ROTOR MULTIPLE INPUT-MULTIPLE OUTPUT SYSTEM
This paper presents the modelling and control of a laboratory helicopter twin rotor MIMO system using the MatLab package. Firstly, we provide an overview of the system model, secondly, we compare the behaviour of fractional and integer order controllers used a PSO algorithm for the controller optimization in order to obtain the minimum error. Finally, we analyse the system performance and the results obtained with the real helicopter show that fractional algorithms are smoother than conventional PID. Both controllers reveal good output responses but the PID needs more energy to perform the same task.
