There are a numerous authentic vibrant systems which are enhanced by considering a non-integer system which is related to the fractional calculus. Integer order differentiation and integration form the basis of previous calculation. The system representation using the method of fractional calculus is an influential instrument that has changed the view of the system modeling. A distinguish and numerous research related to fractional order controllers application in different areas of engineering and science, risen to various study perspectives of analysis, design, tuning and implementation of the fractional order controllers. The distinguish characteristic of fractional order control is that it is a generalization of classical control theory. FOPID controllers are more ample than the previously used IOPID controllers. FOPID controllers are comprehensively used by various technocrats to accomplish the most vigorous recital of the models. Fractional order controllers provide two extra parameters for tuning than the classical PID controllers, which enhance the overall performance of the system. The FOPID controllers are less receptive to the uncertainty of the parameter which may exist in the controller & controlled system.
