Self-tuning Control of an Electronic Throttle

Proceedings of 2003 IEEE Conference on Control Applications (CCA 2003), Istanbul, Turkey, 2003.
A Self-tuning strategy for an electronic throttle servo-system is proposed in order to account for the variations of DC motor armature resistance, battery voltage, and limp-home position. Different self-tuning algorithms have been derived depending on the availability of armature current sensor and control strategy auto-tuning procedure. The presented self-tuning algorithm has been experimentally verified on an experimental setup of electronic throttle control system. For the purpose of experimental verification, a real-time simulator of process parameters variations has been developed.
