In this article the application of genetic algorithm for tuning of HVAC cascade system is proposed. The tuning procedure for a cascade system is very time-consuming and practice shows that additional controller tuning is needed when classical method is used. The main problem in classical method is the interconnection between the parameters of the two controllers. The proposed optimal tuning procedure overcomes the disadvantages. It is based on the following criteria: minimum integral square error, minimum settling time and minimum overshoot. The best process quality is achieved with PI controller in the inner loop and a PID controller in the outer loop of the cascade HVAC system. The proposed method for simultaneous tuning of controller parameters in a cascade control system can be applied in different control systems.
Key words: cascade system control / tuning / HVAC system / genetic algorithm
