A Single Phase Anti-Swing Fuzzy Logic Controller for an Overhead Crane with Hoisting

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


This paper presents a novel approach for automatically creating anti-swing fuzzy logic controllers for overhead cranes with hoisting. This approach uses the inverse dynamics of the overhead crane to determine the ranges of the variables of the controllers. The control action is distributed among three fuzzy logic controllers (FLCs): travel controller, hoist controller, and anti-swing controller. Simulation examples show that the proposed controller can successfully drive overhead cranes under various operating conditions.
