Advances in the use of fractional order calculus in control theory in-
creasingly make their way into control applications such as in the process
industry, electrical machines, mechatronics/robotics, albeit at a slower rate
into control applications in automotive and railway systems. We present
work on advances in high-speed rail vehicle tilt control design enabled by
use of fractional order methods. Analytical problems in rail tilt control still
exist especially on simplified tilt using non-precedent sensor information
(rather than use of the more complex precedence (or preview) schemes).
Challenges arise due to suspension dynamic interactions (due to strong
coupling between roll and lateral dynamic modes) and the sensor measure-
ment. We explore optimized PID-based non-precedent tilt control via both
direct fractional-order PID design and via fractional-order based loop shap-
ing that reduces effect of lags in the design model. The impact of fractional
order design methods on tilt performance (track curve following vs ride
quality) trade off is particularly emphasized. Simulation results illustrate
superior benefit by utilizing fractional order-based tilt control design.
