The objective of this paper is to design and comparative analysis of classical controller tuning using traditional and evolutionary methods for real time system. To achieve this objective, the nonlinear water tank control has been selected as real time system. The proposal- integral-derivative control law is used as control algorithm in controller. The tuning parameters as propositional gain, integral gain and derivative gain are tuned using traditional method and evolutionary method. The performance of both methods are compared and discussed with considering hard constraint of real time system.
