Abstract

The intelligent controller represents a combined performance of both the Fractional Order PID controller (FOPID) and Cuckoo Search Algorithm (CSA). In this paper, an intelligent controller for the speed control of Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) drive system using multi-objective function is proposed. The innovation of the proposed method users in enhanced probing skills, ensures the cutback of the irrational arbitrary production and exhibits supreme skills in successfully addressing and adapting the intricate optimization issues. The FOPID is offered carte-blanche in tuning the constraints in view of the fact that the order of derivative and integral do not constitute the integers. It may pave the way for further vibrant accomplishment when compared to the conventional PID controller. Now, the CSA optimized the gain parameters of the controllers for the speed error and current error regulation loops of the SRM drive control mechanism. Further, the proposed control algorithm goes a long way in optimizing the commutation angles for bringing down the lofty torque ripples. Based on the proposed algorithm control parameters, the speed control of the SRM drive has been enhanced. The proposed intelligent control technique will be implemented in the MATLAB/Simulink platform.
