Ahmet F Konar, Tariq Samad, Steven A Harp: Neruo-pid controller. Honeywell, John G Shudy Jr, March 7, 1995: US05396415 (91 worldwide citation)

PID controllers form a large proportion of controllers in use in many controlled systems today. This application describes how to use a neural network which receives PID inputs to be a controller and operate as a PID controller to save on retraining and provide other efficiencies in control. Also sh ...
