Abstract

This paper describes a Proportional-Differential (PD) control algorithm as a new Active Queue Management (AQM) scheme for TCP/IP congestion control. From the viewpoint of the control theory, TCP congestion control system can be regarded as a feedback regulating system. In this paper, a robust AQM called PD-Controller is proposed. The design principles of PD-Controller are presented in details. Its performance is extensively evaluated by simulations. The results demonstrate that the PD-Controller AQM is stable and robust against traffic load fluctuations, UDP and HTTP disturbances. Its superiority over other AQMs is also demonstrated.
