Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Model Based Automatic Regulating Time Series for Feedback Control Systems

ABSTRACT : In this literature, a model based nonlinear digital control scheme is proposed for analyses and designs of stable feedback control systems. It is derived from the converging characteristic of two specified numerical time series. The ratios of neighborhoods of the series are formulated as a function of the output of the plant and the reference input command, and will be converged to be unities after the output has tracked the reference input command. Lead compensations are found by another numerical time series to speed up the system responses on the on-line adjusting manner and matching the reference model. A servo system, a time-delay system, a high order system and a very high order system are used to show effectiveness of the proposed nonlinear digital controller. Comparisons with other conventional methods are also made.
