Abstract: In the framework of the linear active disturbance rejection control (LADRC) approach, all the uncertainties, including the perturbed internal model parameters and time-varying external disturbances, can be estimated by constructing an extended state observer, and then cancelled in real time. However, the parameter tuning of the approach is an extremely challenging mission. In this paper, the model parameters of the controlled servo motor control system are identified by employing the algebraic parameter identification approach. Afterward, the bacteria foraging optimisation (BFO) algorithm, and the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm are both proposed to optimise the performance of the system driven by the LADRC approach in light of the identified model of the servo motor. The BFO and PSO algorithms and LADRC approach have been extensively applied in optimised control and networked systems. Extensive simulation results and experimental tests are given to demonstrate that the proposed approaches are effective and efficient for the performance optimisation of the LADRC approach.
