Abstract

The control performance of the lifting system of a tractor needs to be further improved in terms of adaptability to the operating environment. This paper presents a mixed simulation method based on MATLAB and LabVIEW, proposes a fuzzy proportional–integral–derivative adaptive control algorithm, and designs a semiphysical simulation platform of the lifting system of a tractor with an adaptive function. The above achievements were applied to field experiments. In a depth control experiment, the adjustment time was 5 s and the maximum overshoot was 90% when the tillage depth decreased from 20 to 10 cm while the adjustment time was 18 s and the maximum overshoot was 20% when the tillage depth increased from 10 to 25 cm. In a traction control experiment, the adjustment time was 1.4 s and the maximum overshoot was 25% when the traction force increased from 3000 to 7000 N while the adjustment time was 2 s and the maximum overshoot was 51% when the traction force decreased from 7000 to 2000 N. In a traction and tillage depth joint control experiment, the steady–state errors of the traction force and ploughing depth were respectively ±4000 N and ±5.5 cm.
