Abstract—In this original work, we compare different optimization techniques and demonstrate the most favorable one for tuning PID parameters. This paper demonstrates effectively how to efficiently search for Optimal PID Controller Parameters for 3 different Plant functions using Bat Algorithm. Different types of optimization method are studied which are then compared with Ziegler-Nichols Algorithm. Our work shows that if parameters population and maximum iteration are kept constant, the proposed Bat-Ziegler-PID algorithm has the best performance criterion amongst different nature inspired meta-heuristic algorithms.
