A fractional order control strategy has been implemented in an automated laboratory hydraulic canal characterized to present time-varying dynamical parameters. A method for tuning a fractional order PI controller that makes the hydraulic canal control system robust to process parameters variations has been proposed too. Experiments have been carried out in our laboratory hydraulic canal, and the fractional controller has been implemented in an industrial SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) control and supervision system. The comparison between the response of our fractional PI controller and the standard PI controller proved the effectiveness of the proposed fractional order control strategy in terms of performance and robustness.
