The control of time-delay systems is a hot research topic. Ever since the theory of linear active disturbance rejection control (LADRC) was put forward, considerable progress has been made. LADRC shows a good control effect on the control of time-delay systems. The problem about the parameter stability region of LADRC controllers has been seldom discussed, which is very important for practical application. In this study, the dual-locus diagram method, which is used to solve the upper limit of the LADRC controller bandwidth, is studied for both first-order time-delay systems and second-order time-delay systems. The characteristic equation roots distribution is firstly transformed into the problem of finding the frequency of the dual-locus diagram intersection point. To solve the problem for second-order time-delay system LADRC controllers, which is a dual 10-order nonlinear equation, a transformation has been made through Euler’s formula and genetic algorithm (GA) has been adopted to search for the optimal parameters. Simulation results and experimental results on coupled tanks show the effectivity of the proposed method. View Full-Text
