Abstract

In this paper, the use of multiple hybrid integrator-gain elements in a PID-based control design is dis-cussed. From a describing function perspective, each individual element possesses similar magnitude characteristics as a linear-equivalent filter, but with significantly reduced phase lag. These preferable phase properties potentially facilitate a closed-loop controller design with increased bandwidths. However, as a drawback, the use of multiple nonlinearities in the controller may increase the discrepancy between a performance prediction on the basis of describing functions, and true time-domain system behaviour. For the proposed nonlinear controller, conditions are formulated by which a describing function analysis may still yield meaningful time-domain performance predictions. The usefulness of these conditions, and effectiveness of the nonlinear control design are experimentally demonstrated on a motor-load motion system.
