Abstract: The liquid level control in conical tank is tough task owing to variable cross-sectional area. The replica of the conical tank is recognized using standard step test technique and is approximated to be FOPTD model. In this paper, PSO based LQR-PI controller has been wished-for conical tank system. The PI controller gains are formulated as the optimal state-feedback gains. A PSO has been accustomed optimally to discover the weighting matrices, related to the various optimum statefeedback regulator design whereas minimizing ISE and the controller effort. The performance of the proposed PSO based LQR-PI controller is contrasted with those of GA-LQR-PI and LQR-PI controllers.
