Control 3 Keypoints: PID control

Steady-state error and the integral method Overshoot and ringing in system with time delay Overshoot and ringing in second order systems The derivative method PID control P = Proportional error I = Integral D = Derivative

A standard and very useful method for augmenting simple feedback control E.g. used in wheel position/speed control in the Khepera Proportional error control

Desired output Control Law Motor command Robot in environment Disturbances Actual output Measurement Same as servo, i.e. using a control signal proportional to the difference between the actual (measured) output and the desired (target) output. I.e. want to make large change when error is large, small change if error is small Steady state error Servo control law: New process:

Battery voltage VB Vehicle speed s ? gain=K sgoal s With steady state (ds/dt=0): Steady state error: Steady state error k1 is determined by the motor physics: e= k1 s

Battery voltage VB Vehicle speed s ? gain=K sgoal s k1 is determined by the motor physics: e= k1 s Can choose Kp: to reach target want But we cant put an infinite voltage into our motor! Steady state error For any sensible Kp the system will undershoot the target velocity. s sgoal t Proportional Integral (PI) Control

If we could estimate this error we could add it to the control signal: The best way to estimate it is to integrate the error over time: Obtain new control law: Basically, this sums some fraction of the error until the error is reduced to zero. With careful choice of Kp and Ki this can eliminate the steady state error. Feedback with time delays

Desired output Control Law Motor command Robot in environment Disturbances Actual output Measurement Imagine trying to move a robot to some zero position with the simple control law: If xt < - move forward at 1cm/second, If xt > move backward at 1cm/second, If - < xt < stop What happens if there is a 1 second delay in feedback? Feedback with time delays

In general, a time-lag in a feedback loop will result in overshoot and oscillation. Depending on the dynamics, the oscillation could fade out, continue or increase. Sometimes we want oscillation, e.g. CPG Central Pattern Generators

Many movements in animals, and robots, are rhythmic, e.g. walking Rather than explicitly controlling position, can exploit an oscillatory process, e.g. If A is tonically active, it will excite B When B becomes active it inhibits A When A is inhibited, it stops exciting B When B is inactive it stops inhibiting A A B Feedback with time delays

In general, a time-lag in a feedback loop will result in overshoot and oscillation. Depending on the dynamics, the oscillation could fade out, continue or increase. Sometimes we want oscillation, e.g. CPG Note that integration introduces a time delay. Time delays are equivalent to energy storage e.g. inertia will cause similar effects. AmplificationK of current I

Second order system Need more sophisticated model for oscillations AmplificationK of current I Output torque T error goal Want to move to desired postion goal For a dc motor on a robot joint where J = joint inertia, F = joint friction Proportional control: Second order system solution

For simplicity let Then the system process is The solution to this equation has the form The system behaviour depends on J,F,Kp as follows: where [May be complex] Over and Under Damping The system returns to the goal

The system returns to the goal with over-damping The system returns to the goal with under-damped,sinusoidal behaviour Steady state error Load Droop

If the system has to hold a load against gravity, it requires a constant torque But PE controller cannot do this without error, as torque is proportional to error (so, needs some error) If we knew the load L could use But in practice this is not often possible Proportional integral (PI) control

As before, we integrate the error over time, i.e. Effectively this gradually increases L until it produces enough torque to compensate for the load PI copes with Load Droop Proportional derivative (PD) control

Commonly, inertia is large and friction small Consequently the system overshoots, reverses the error and control signal, overshoots again To actively brake the motion, we want to apply negative torque when error is small and velocity high Make Artificial friction: Combine as PID control Kp error g Ki Kdd/dt Torque PID control demo Rearranging becomes (almost) solveable as: PID control demo II Pure proportional control with friction & inertia

Overdamped, overshoot, oscillate Choosing Kp, Kd, Ki a bit tricky PID control demo III Use Kp=0.003 Add integral control

Less overdamped, overshoot, oscillate PID control demo IV Add derivative control

Less overdamped, overshoot, oscillate PID control demo V Goal: track oscillating goal position (red)

Original Kp=0.003 gain lags, undershoots Kp=0.006 ok, but lags. Kp=0.03 tracks better but overshoots Further reading: Most standard control textbooks discuss PID control.
