Abstract
This article presents a closed loop control of DC series motor fed by DC chopper controlled by an PID controller based intelligent control using ANN (Artificial Neural Network). The PID-ANN controller performances are analyzed in both steady state and dynamic operating condition with various set speed and various load torque. Here two different motor parameters are taken for analysis (220V and 110V motor parameters). The static and dynamic performances are taken for comparison with conventional PID controller and existing work. The steady state stability analysis of the system also made using the transfer function model. The equation model is also done to analysis the performances by set speed change and load torque change. The proposed controller have better control over the conventional PID controller and the reported existing work. This system is initially simulated using MATLAB / Simulink and then experimental setup done using P89V51RD2BN microcontroller.

1. Introduction
DC series motor in industrial environment has increased, due to the high performance and high starting torque as suitable drive system. The intelligent control based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN), has been utilized for various applications including motor control. This controller has made the control of complex nonlinear systems with uncertainty or un-modeled dynamics as simple as possible [1] . The conventional controllers like PI and PID controllers were widely used earlier for chopper control and motor control applications. But it does not give satisfactory results when control parameters, loading conditions and the motor itself are changed. Intelligent control techniques involving ANN were found to be simpler for implementation and powerful in control applications. MATLAB/ Simulink is used to analyze the performance of the proposed controllers [2 , 3] .
The training patterns were generated using conventional PI controller and the effectiveness of the proposed scheme was illustrated using simulation studies and the designed controller was implemented in a low cost 8051-based embedded system and the results are documented [4] . A comparison was made with PI, fuzzy, and ANN controllers that were implemented in an embedded system for closedloop speed control of DC drive fed by a buck-type DC-DC power converter. It was found that the PI based ANN controller has a better control [5] . A fuzzy controller for closed loop control of DC drive fed by four-quadrant chopper is designed and the fuzzy controller was implemented in a low-cost 8051 micro-controller based embedded system. The dynamic response of DC motor with fuzzy controller was tested and found to be satisfactory [6] . DC series motor drive fed by a single phase controlled rectifier (AC to DC converter) and controlled by fuzzy logic was presented. It has been concluded that the fuzzy logic controller provides better control [7] . A fuzzy controller for closed loop control of DC series motor drive fed by DC-DC converter was designed. The fuzzy based DC-DC drive can have better control [8 - 10] .
A robust PID-like Neuro-Fuzzy controller has an ability to compensate for parameter variation, was proposed and applied to the speed control of the indirect vectorcontrolled induction motor. Simulation and experimental results confirm that the system has good dynamic performance [11] . The efficient speed controller for a DC servo motor based on neural non-causal inverse modeling of the motor was developed [12] . The random training for the neural networks was accomplished online, which enables better absorption of system uncertainties into the neural controller [13] . Different hybrid techniques using PID and ANN controller were discussed for DC series motor and separately excited motor [14 - 18] . The stability analysis method based on the higher ordered derivatives of universal learning networks and its application to a DC motor system were described [19 - 21] . Fuzzy-Neuro control architecture was applied for some special electrical machines like brush less DC motor, permanent magnet DC motor and switched reluctance motor in order to obtain the precise speed control and better performances [22 - 24] .
In this present work the DC series motor with two different parameters are controlled by DC-DC buck converter. The PID controller performance is enhanced by Artificial Neural Network. Initially the equation and transfer function model of the DC series motor with DCDC converter is developed and simulated using MATLAB/ Simulink. Then the system is implemented with a NXP 80C51 family Microcontroller.
2. Proposed System
The block diagram of the proposed system with Hybrid PID-ANN controller is shown in Fig. 1 . The system consists of DC-DC buck converter (DC chopper) to drive the DC series motor. The system has two loops, namely an inner ON/OFF current control loop and an outer PIDANN speed control loop. The actual current of the motor is sensed by a LEM current sensor and given to the comparator. The comparator compares the actual and reference current and gives the signal to the gate. The gate blocks the PWM signal whenever the motor current exceeds the reference current (I Lref ).

Block diagram of the proposed system
The PWM coming from the ANN controller is given as first input to the logical AND gate. The actual current and the reference current are compared with a comparator and the comparator output is given to the second input to the AND gate. The comparator output is logical 1 when the actual current within the limit of the reference current. The comparator output is logical 0 when the actual current exceeds the limit. In such a way that the PWM from ANN controller comes out of the logical AND gate when the actual current within the limit. Otherwise the AND gate blocks the PWM and protect the motor from over current. This controller is called as ON/OFF type current controller. Then the PWM is given to the DC-DC buck converter through the gate and isolator.
In outer speed control loop, the actual speed ω(k) is sensed by pulse type speed sensor and which is given to the f to v converter and this voltage is used for speed feedback to the ADC and then given to the microcontroller. The error signal e(k) is obtained by comparing actual speed ω(k) with reference speed ωr(k). The change in error Δe(k) can be calculated from the present error e(k) and pervious error e pervious (k).
In Hybrid PID-ANN controller the error and change in error are given as input. The output of the controller is denoted as duty cycle dc(k). The change in duty cycle Δdc(k) can be calculated from the new duty cycle dc(k) and previous duty cycle dc pervious (k). The PWM signal is generated by the Hybrid PID-ANN controller. The PWM signal was generated, by comparing the repeating sequence and the duty cycle from the controller. Then the PWM signal controls the output voltage of DC-DC converter. The output voltage of the DC-DC buck converter is varied from zero to maximum of input voltage applied, so wide range of speed control possible from zero to the rated speed. The input and output gain of the PID-ANN controller can be estimated by simulation [8 , 9] .

The transfer function for DC series motor could no longer be valid due to its non-linear characteristics. In order to obtain the transfer function, the operating point is considered as armature current I a0 , armature voltage V a0 , load torque T L0 , back emf E b0 and residual emf E res0 .
Considering the small perturbations around the operating points as Δi a , Δv a , Δt d , Δω, Δv s , Δt l , Δe b and Δe res , then the parameters can be written as

- 4.1 PID controller design and stability analysis
The PID controller improves the steady state and transient response. It is the combination of proportional control action, integral control action and derivative control action. The Proportional control action stabilizes the gain but produces a steady state error, the integral action reduces the steady state error and the derivative action reduces the rate of change of error. The transfer function of PID controller is given in Eq. (21)

  • b2=Ti(JRa+kafω0J+BLa) andb3=TiJLa
The PID controller parameters are determined by Ziegler-Nichols method. In this method, the controller has to run by taking only K p value, increase the K p value of the controller until the system, self-oscillating with constant amplitude, then take the controller gain. According to Ziegler-Nichols procedure, the ultimate gain Ku and the ultimate period of oscillation Pu , are used to find the parameters of the PID controller. The values of Ku and Pu are obtained from the system with MATLAB/Simulink. The K p , T i and T d values are determined using Table 1 [3] .

The plot is obtained using the transfer function, given in Eq. 25. From the Bode plot it can be absorbed that the phase margin is 45° and the gain margin is 10dB, both gain margin and phase margin are positive, hence the system is stable.

The system stability is also checked by Nyquist stability criterion. If G(s)H(s) (loop transfer function) contour in the G(s)H(s) plane corresponding to Nyquist contour in the S plane encircles the point -1+j0 in the anticlockwise direction as many time as the number of right half of S plane poles of G(s)H(s), then the closed loop system is stable. From the Nyquist plot shown in Fig. 4 , it is examined that the Nyquist contour is not encircles the critical point -1+j0 and there is no poles on right half of the S plane, this implies that the system is stable.

Though the system with PID controller is stable, the performance of time response which is shown in Fig. 5 is not good. In order to achieve the better transient and steady state response of the PID controller, it’s performance is enhanced by hybridization with ANN. The error, change in error and duty cycle are the training data for ANN controller and they are obtained from the simulated motordrive system with PID controller.

- 4.2 Design of PID based artificial neural network controller (Hybrid PID-ANN)
The neural network is based on nonlinear control algorithm that can be worked out because of its mathematical nature [1] . In this section, the solution of implementing PID controller in a neural network is discussed. The ANN controllers designed in most of the work use a complex network structure for the controller. The aim of this work is to design a simple ANN controller with as low neurons as possible while improving the performance of the controller. A two layer feed forward neural network is constructed with two neurons in the input layer and one in the output layer. As the inputs to the neuron controller is the error and change in error. The neurons are biased.
Generally in an Artificial Neural Network, each neuron has an activation function which specifies the output of a neuron to a given input. Neurons are ‘switches’ that output ‘1’ when they are sufficiently activated and ‘0’ when not activated. The activation functions used for the input neurons are pure linear activation function and for the output neurons are tangent sigmoid activation function. The network is trained for the set of inputs and desired outputs [4] . The training patterns are extracted from the designed PID controller. A Supervised back propagation Neural Network-training algorithm is used with a fixed error goal [5] . The network is trained for an error goal of 0.0005. The error (e) and change in error (ce) are the inputs to the controller. The output corresponds to the change in the duty cycle for the motor control. The detail of the trained network is shown in Fig. 8 . The complete simulation model of the drive system with Hybrid PID-ANN controller is given in Fig. 9 .

The speed variations and current variations for the step change in reference speed from 500rpm to 1000rpm at 4 sec and 1000rpm to 1500rpm at 7 sec with 10% load torque for 220V DC series motor with PID and PID-ANN controller are shown in Fig. 10 . Due to the inertia in the beginning the motor takes 0.3sec to reach the speed from 0 to 500rpm whereas in the second step it took 0.25sec only to reach the speed from 500 to 1000rpm. The Hybrid PIDANN controller performance was analyzed by changing the motor parameters as mentioned in the Table 2 . Fig. 11 shows the speed variations and current variations for the step change in reference speed from 500rpm to 1000rpm at 4 sec and 1000rpm to 1500rpm at 8 sec with 10% load torque for 110V DC series motor with PID-ANN controller.

It is seen from the Fig. 11 the Hybrid PID-ANN controller regulates the speed at 1500 rpm. Also due to the inertia in the beginning the motor takes 0.21 sec to reach the speed from 0 to 500rpm whereas in the second step it took 0.15 sec only to reach from 500 to 1000rpm. The Hybrid PID-ANN controller provides proper seed regulation for all the step speed changes. The comparative time domain parameters of 220V motor and 110V motor for speed variation of various set speeds are depicted in Table 3 . From the comparative analysis in table 3 shows the designed PID-ANN controller performance is fairly good compared with the reported result in [7 - 9] .

With respect to Table 4 the overall performance of Hybrid PID-ANN controller is evaluated. Up to 25% of load, the maximum speed drop and the recovery time is negligible in PID-ANN controller. If the load increased from 25% to 100% its value increased slightly. The steady state error is also very less in PID-ANN controller than the conventional PID controller. Therefore the PID-ANN controller performance is superior comparing with [7 - 9] and designed PID controller performance during load changes from 10% to 100%.
The time domain performance of set speed changes and load disturbances are simulated and compared with both the controllers for 220V motor are shown in Fig. 14 . The set speed is changed from 1000rpm to 1800rpm at 4sec. The load disturbance is at 7sec. between 10% and 50%. From the simulated result it is inferred that the Hybrid PID-ANN controller gives better performance during speed changes and load disturbances. The performance comparison of proposed Hybrid PID-ANN controller with conventional PID controller is given in Table 5 .

The speed regulation for various loaded conditions was compared for both controllers in Fig. 15 . From the curve it is observed that in PID controller up to 50% of load the speed is maintaining constant, after 50 % of load the speed is decreases (4% of the rated speed). In Hybrid PID-ANN controller up to 100% of load the speed is maintaining constant value. Thus the Hybrid PID-ANN controller gives the better performance than the PID controller. The Hybrid PID-ANN controller provides proper speed regulation to the system for the load changes from 10% to 100%. From the Tables 3 , 4 and 5 it is seen that all the performance parameter value is lesser and few parameters are reduces to zero for hybrid PID-ANN controller than the PID controller which shows that the dominance of developed Hybrid PID-ANN controller.

- 5.2 Experimental results
The designed controllers were implemented with DCDC converter fed DC series motor by using the NXP 80C51 microcontroller (P89V51RD2BN) based Embedded System. The microcontroller (P89V51RD2BN) has an 80C51 compatible core and it has the features of 80C51 Central Processing Unit, 5V operating voltage from 0 to 40 MHz, 64 kB of on-chip Flash program memory. It also has a PCA (Programmable Counter Array) with PWM and Capture/Compare functions.
In this experimental setup the speed is measured through the compact, high sensing accuracy type optical photo interrupter GP1L53V. This is a device where IR LED and photo-transistor is coupled in to plastic housing. The gap between then allows interrupting signal with opaque material and this way switching the output from ON to OFF. It is a pulse type speed sensor. The pulse frequency then converted in to voltage signal by LM2917 frequency to voltage converter. The actual speed in terms of voltage is given to the 8bit ADC ADC0808CCN. Also the speed is captured as voltage signal using a cathode ray oscilloscope. This speed signal is used for speed feedback from the ADC output to the microcontroller.
The set speed variation is done with the help of potentiometer. The PWM is generated using the microcontroller. The PWM is generated at a frequency of 10 KHz. LEM make current sensor LTSR 25-NP is used to sense the armature current and gives the output to the AND gate. The AND gate is used to allow the PWM when the actual current is less than the set current. Then the PWM is amplified and fed to the DC-DC power converter through an optocoupler isolator CYN 17-1 and driver IC IR2110 chip.
The implementation is done for 1HP DC series motor. The rating of the motor is 1HP, 220V, 3.3A and 1500rpm. The power converter used for controlling the DC series motor is designed with the power MOSFET IRFP450. The rating of IRFP450 is 500V drain source voltage and 14A drain current. To improve the current rating two MOSETs are connected parallel in the power circuit. But actual current rating required for the 1HP motor is 3.3A only. The DC-DC converter output is given to the DC series motor whose speed is to be controlled. Fig. 16 shows the experimental setup of the proposed system.

6. Conclusion
The performance of the hybrid PID-ANN controlled DC-DC converter fed DC series motor is presented. The steady state and dynamic speed response of DC series motor with Hybrid PID-ANN controller was estimated for various load torque and various speed and found that the speed can be controlled effectively. Even the motor parameters vary the controller works effectively and give the proper speed regulation. This advantage arises from the fact that the Artificial Neural Network has the property of generalization and the neural controller can have a smooth control surface. Also, the architecture of the designed neural network controller is simple and uses only two layers with three biased neurons. The hybrid PID-ANN controller is easy to implement and reduces the computation burden in embedded systems. Finally the hardware also implemented and verified the hardware results with the simulated results, which almost follow the simulation results. Here the Hybrid PID-ANN controller is reduced the computational time. Also the memory required for the program is reduced. The cost of the microcontroller is also less; therefore it can be implemented with economic in real world applications. Hence it can be recommended for all modern industrial drive applications using DC series motor. The analysis provides the various useful parameters and the information for effective use of proposed system.
