Nonlinear Internal Model Control using Neural networks : application to Processes with Delay and Design Issues

Abstract : We propose a design procedure of neural internal model control systems for stable processes with delay. We show that the design of such non adaptive indirect control systems necessitates only the training of the inverse of the model deprived from its delay, and that the presence of the delay thus does not increase the order of the inverse. The controller is then obtained by cascading this inverse with a rallying model which imposes the regulation dynamic behavior and ensures the robustness of the stability. A change in the desired regulation dynamic behavior, or an improvement of the stability, can be obtained by simply tuning the rallying model, without retraining the whole model reference controller. The robustness properties of internal model control systems being obtained when the inverse is perfect, we detail the precautions which must be taken for the training of the inverse so that it is accurate in the whole space visited during operation with the process. In the same spirit, we make an emphasis on neural models affine in the control input, whose perfect inverse is derived without training. The control of simulated processes illustrates the proposed design procedure and the properties of the neural internal model control system for processes without and with delay.
