Abstract: In this paper, a novel design method for determining the optimal proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller parameters for nonlinear multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system using the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm is presented. Firstly, a nonlinear system was described based on Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy models. Assuming that the antecedent parameters of T-S models were kept, the consequent parameters were identified online by using the weighted recursive least square (WRLS) method. Secondly, the identified parameters of fuzzy model were used to directly receive the model predicted output with direct iterative for the T-S model. The fast tuning of optimum PID controller parameters yields high-quality solution. In order to assist estimating the performance of the proposed PSO-PID controller, a new time-domain performance criterion function was also defined. Finally, the application results for continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) process show that the proposed algorithm is an effective control strategy with excellent tracing ability.
