The milieu of the paper is the melioration of the performance of heating furnace, which is done by the tuning of the fractional order proportional integral derivative (FOPID) controller using various tuning techniques and the optimization algorithms. These techniques help us to find out the standards of the integer order tuning parameters and also the fractional order parameters of the PID controller. The Astrom-Hagglund and the Chien-Hrones-Reswick methods of tuning are used for tuning the tuning parameters of the controller, where Nelder-Mead optimization technique is used for optimizing the values of differ-integrals. These standards of parameters obtained using mentioned tuning techniques help us to generate standardized differ-integral order of the FOPID controller. This helps to improve the performance of the heating furnace. The complete process has been executed after the approximate dynamic modelling of the heating furnace.
