Rights accessOpen Access
Although PID control has been widely used in practical engineering, its ability to reject external disturbance and to handle severe nonlinearities should be further enhanced. In this paper, we present a simple robust unknown dynamics estimation, which can be easily incorporated into PID control to achieve satisfactory control performance for a rotomagnet plant subject to period disturbance. The use of this estimator together with PID control leads to a feedforward like composite control framework. Unlike other estimators, only low-pass filter operations on the input and output and simple algebraic operations are needed to construct our estimator, while exponential convergence can be guaranteed. Numerical simulations are given to show the validity of the proposed estimator and composite PID control.
