Adaptive PID Control of UAV Altitude Dynamics Based on Parameter Optimization with Fuzzy Inference

Amr Sarhan and Shiyin Qin
Abstract—This paper developed an adaptive PID flight controller based on parameter optimization with fuzzy inference for controlling the altitude dynamics of the Aerosonde UAV. The online fuzzy inference is used as a self-adaptive mechanism for tuning the PID parameters. The proposed adaptive PID flight controller is compared with two other controllers. The first controller is the genetically-tuned PID controller, and the other is the fuzzy logic controller. The simulation results show the good performance characteristics and good robust stability for the proposed adaptive PID controller.

Index Terms—PID control, fuzzy control, adaptive PID control, UAV.
