Abstract: This paper introduces a design for multi-objective PID controller using non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II). When selecting the objectives to be optimized, it is taken into account to cover some important characteristics of the system like performance, robustness and control signals’ smoothness. The decision making is done using Level diagram tool. Three tanks liquid level system control is discussed as a case study. The results show that this tool improves the process of decision making (DM). Also, comparisons with Ziegler and Nichols (Z-N) and different optimization methods are presented.

Keywords: Decision making (DM), Evolutionary algorithm (EA), Level Diagram (LD), Multi-objective optimization (MO), PID controller, Three Tanks Liquid Level System.
