This paper discusses conventional and meta-heuristic methods to find optimal parameters of the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller for AVR system. In witch Ziegler-Nichols Technique (ZN) and Particle Swarm Optimization Technique (PSO) is described in detail to obtain the optimal PID controller parameters of an AVR system. The design goal is to minimize transient response so by minimizing overshoot, settling time and rise time of AVR system we can minimize transient response of AVR system. In proposed approaches PSO had superior features, including it can apply easily, getting batter solutions, and good computational efficiency. Compare the result of AVR system by using Particle Swarm Optimization Technique (PSO) and Ziegler-Nichols Technique (ZN). The obtained result of the PSO-PID shows excellent performance of the PID controller.
