- This paper presents optimal PID controller design for Automatic Voltage Regulator systems. This research uses Simulink in MATLAB to compare the experimental result, and finding PID Gain by particle swarm optimization (PSO) are compared to hybrid particle swarm optimization (HPSO). The result of tracking control for AVR systems by selecting the PID gain by using hybrid particle swarm optimization (HPSO) apply to PID algorithm has a better result than other algorithms.
