In this research, to obtain satisfactory control performance of ultrasonic motor (USM) in position control, a hybrid intelligent method based on PID control using neural networks (NNs) combined with Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm is proposed. Using the proposed intelligent control method, the gains of PID control are auto-tuned to minimize the errors in position control. The proposed method is with simple structure and easy to be implemented in estimation. It is designed to compensate the nonlinearity and characteristic changes in position control. The proposed hybridization of NN and ABC makes the intelligent scheme superior in usefulness and effectiveness. In this paper, the control performance and effectiveness of the proposed method were confirmed and studied according to experimental results on an existing USM servo system.
