Comparison of approaches to air spring height control
Rágulík J., Sivčák M.
pages 325 - 328, full text

The paper deals with the comparison of control approaches to the height of the bellows air spring. These approaches are PI control, a deep reinforcement learning algorithm, and a combination of both control techniques, the neuro-PI controller. In the case of a neuro-PI controller, it is essentially control by a reinforcement learning algorithm, but its control neural network contains only two weights that are gained in the learning process. The advantage of the neuro-PI controller created in this way is that its functionality can be formally verified in the same way as a classic PI controller. However, such a procedure is only possible when controlling relatively simple systems, such as the described application for controlling an air spring, which is a dynamic system with one degree of freedom. All the above approaches are applied to a mathematical model of an air spring created in the Simulink environment; a deep reinforcement learning algorithm is created in MATLAB.
