In response to the problems of the inaccurate pneumatic control valve model, the slow valve position control, and the low precision in the industrial control process, some improvement methods are proposed. Firstly, the fractional-order concept is introduced based on the first-order inertia model and IBBO (improved biogeography-based optimization) is used for iteration to obtain a specific transfer function model. Secondly, a fractional-order and two-degree-of-freedom combined internal model control algorithm is proposed. Finally, semi-physical experiments are carried out on a semi-physical experimental platform. The results show that in the field of pneumatic regulating valves, the fractional-order model has good adaptability and effectiveness, and the two-degree-of-freedom fractional-order internal model control algorithm also effectively improves the accuracy, speed, and robustness of the valve position control.
