Abstract
Proportional, integrative and derivative (PID) controllers are among the most used in industrial control applications. Classical PID controller design methodologies can be significantly improved by incorporating recent computational intelligence techniques. Two techniques based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms are proposed to design PI-PID controllers. Both control design methodologies are directed to optimize PI-PID controller gains using two degrees-of-freedom control configurations, subjected to frequency domain robustness constraints. The first technique proposes a single-objective PSO algorithm, to sequentially design a two degrees-of-freedom control structure, considering the optimization of load disturbance rejection followed by set-point tracking optimization. The second technique proposes a many-objective PSO algorithm, to design a two degrees-of-freedom control structure, considering simultaneously, the optimization of four different design criteria. In the many-objective case, the control engineer may select the most adequate solution among the resulting optimal Pareto set. Simulation results are presented showing the effectiveness of the proposed PI-PID design techniques, in comparison with both classic and optimization based methods.

Revisiting the Simulated Annealing Algorithm from a Teaching Perspective

Abstract
Hill climbing and simulated annealing are two fundamental search techniques integrating most artificial intelligence and machine learning courses curricula. These techniques serve as introduction to stochastic and probabilistic based metaheuristics. Simulated annealing can be considered a hill-climbing variant with a probabilistic decision. While simulated annealing is conceptually a simple algorithm, in practice it can be difficult to parameterize. In order to promote a good simulated annealing algorithm perception by students, a simulation experiment is reported here. Key implementation issues are addressed, both for minimization and maximization problems. Simulation results are presented.
