Attempts have been made by many researchers to increase the range of linearity of transducers. Objective: This paper presents a method to compensate nonlinearity of Linear Variable Displacement Transducer (LVDT) based on Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm. Because of the mechanism structure, LVDT often exhibit inherent nonlinear inputoutput characteristics. The best approximation capability of optimized ANN technique is beneficial to this. The use of this proposed method is demonstrated through computer simulation with the experimental data of two different LVDT. Results: The results reveal that the proposed method compensated the presence of nonlinearity in the displacement transducer with very low Mean Square Error (MSE) and better linearity. Conclusion: This research work involves less computational complexity and it behaves a good performance for nonlinearity compensation for LVDT and has good application prospect.
