AN OPTIMIZED FUZZY LOGIC CONTROLLER FOR WIRELESS NETWORK CONTROL SYSTEM USING PSO
Wireless Networked Control System (WNCS), has the advantage of control signal efficiency, reduced costs, robust, and more flexible over the wired Networked Control System (NCS). However, one of the most important challenges of WNCS is the variable and random time delay associated with the network that effect on the whole system stability. In this paper, a fuzzy PID controller is proposed to overcome this issue by controlling the DC motor over the Wi-Fi network. PSO algorithm is used to tune the controller, and TrueTime simulator is used to simulate the Wi-Fi network. Experimental results showed that the tuned Fuzzy PID controller is efficiently reduced the effect of the time delay. The results show that the network can handle up to 7500 and 6000 nodes when the bandwidth is 0.4 and 0.9 respectively without a sensible degradation in the system performance of the tackled system.
