Design Parallel Linear PD Compensation by Fuzzy Sliding Compensator for Continuum Robot

By Amin Jalali Farzin Piltan Mohammadreza Hashemzadeh Fatemeh BibakVaravi Hossein Hashemzadeh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2013

In this paper, a linear proportional derivative (PD) controller is designed for highly nonlinear and uncertain system by using robust factorization approach. To evaluate a linear PD methodology two type methodologies are introduced; sliding mode controller and fuzzy logic methodology. This research aims to design a new methodology to fix the position in continuum robot manipulator. PD method is a linear methodology which can be used for highly nonlinear system’s (e.g., continuum robot manipulator). To estimate this method, new parallel fuzzy sliding mode controller (PD.FSMC) is used. This estimator can estimate most of nonlinearity terms of dynamic parameters to achieve the best performance. The asymptotic stability of fuzzy PD control with first-order sliding mode compensation in the parallel structure is proven. For the parallel structure, the finite time convergence with a super-twisting second-order sliding-mode is guaranteed.

Design Novel Soft Computing Backstepping Controller with Application to Nonlinear Dynamic Uncertain System

By Amin Jalali Farzin Piltan Hossein Hashemzadeh Alireza Hasiri Mohammadreza Hashemzadeh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Sep. 2013

The increasing demand for multi-degree-of-freedom (DOF) continuum robot in presence of highly nonlinear dynamic parameters in a number of industries has motivated a flurry of research in the development of soft computing nonlinear methodology. This robot is capable of providing smooth and isotropic three-dimensional motion in each joint. Compared to conventional robotic manipulators that offer the same motion capabilities, the innovative spherical motor possesses several advantages. Not only can the spherical motor combine 3-DOF motion in a single joint, it has a large range of motion with no singularities in its workspace. This research contributes to the on-going research effort by exploring alternate methods for controlling the continuum robot manipulator. This research addresses two basic issues related to the control of a continuum robots; (1) a more accurate representation of the dynamic model of an existing prototype, and (2) the design of a robust feedback controller. The robust backstepping controller proposed in this research is used to further demonstrate the appealing features exhibited by the continuum robot. Robust feedback controller is used to position control of continuum robot in presence of uncertainties. Using Lyapunov type stability arguments, a robust backstepping controller is designed to achieve this objective. The controller developed in this research is designed in two steps. Firstly, a robust stabilizing torque is designed for the nominal continuum robot dynamics derived using the constrained Lagrangian formulation. Next, the fuzzy logic methodology applied to it to solution uncertainty problem. The fuzzy model free problem is formulated to minimize the nonlinear formulation of continuum robot. The eventual stability of the controller depends on the torque generating capabilities of the continuum robots.

Colonial Competitive Optimization Sliding Mode Controller with Application to Robot Manipulator

By Amin Jalali Farzin Piltan Maziyar Keshtgar Meysam Jalali

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2013

One of the best nonlinear robust controllers which can be used in uncertain nonlinear systems is sliding mode controller (SMC), but pure SMC results in chattering in a noisy environment. This effect can be eliminated by optimizing the sliding surface slope. This paper investigates a novel methodology in designing a SMC by a new heuristic search, so called "colonial competitive algorithm "in order to tune the sliding surface slope and the switching gain of the discontinuous part in SMC structure. This process decreases the integral of absolute errors which results in tracking the desired inputs by the outputs in designing a controller for robot manipulator. Simulation results prove that the optimized performance obtained through CCA significantly reduces the chattering phenomena and results in better trajectory tracking compared to typical trial and error methods.

Model-Free Adaptive Fuzzy Sliding Mode Controller Optimized by Particle Swarm for Robot Manipulator

By Amin Jalali Farzin Piltan Atefeh Gavahian Meysam Jalali Mozhdeh Adibi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2013

The main purpose of this paper is to design a suitable control scheme that confronts the uncertainties in a robot. Sliding mode controller (SMC) is one of the most important and powerful nonlinear robust controllers which has been applied to many non-linear systems. However, this controller has some intrinsic drawbacks, namely, the chattering phenomenon, equivalent dynamic formulation, and sensitivity to the noise. This paper focuses on applying artificial intelligence integrated with the sliding mode control theory. Proposed adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller optimized by Particle swarm algorithm (AFSMC-PSO) is a Mamdani’s error based fuzzy logic controller (FLS) with 7 rules integrated with sliding mode framework to provide the adaptation in order to eliminate the high frequency oscillation (chattering) and adjust the linear sliding surface slope in presence of many different disturbances and the best coefficients for the sliding surface were found by offline tuning Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). Utilizing another fuzzy logic controller as an impressive manner to replace it with the equivalent dynamic part is the main goal to make the model free controller which compensate the unknown system dynamics parameters and obtain the desired control performance without exact information about the mathematical formulation of model.
