A hybrid computational intelligent approach which combines wavelet fuzzy neural network (WFNN) with switching particle swarm optimization (SPSO) algorithm is proposed to control the nonlinearity, wide variation in loads, time variation, and uncertain disturbance of the high-power AC servo system. The WFNN method integrated wavelet transforms with fuzzy rules and is proposed to achieve precise positioning control of the AC servo system. As the WFNN controller, the back-propagation method is used for the online learning algorithm. Moreover, the SPSO is proposed to adapt the learning rates of the WFNN online, where the velocity updating equation is according to a Markov chain, which makes it easy to jump the local minimum, and acceleration coefficients are dependent on mode switching. Furthermore, the stability of the closed loop system is guaranteed by using the Lyapunov method. The results of the simulation and the prototype test prove that the proposed approach can improve the steady-state performance and possess strong robustness to both parameter perturbation and load disturbance.
