A New Fuzzy Logic Decoupling Scheme for TITO Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1196)


In the paper fuzzy logic methods for dynamic decoupling of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) dynamical systems are analysed. A structure of the fuzzy precompensator, which may be used instead classical ideal and inverted decoupling control schemes, is presented. The proposal is illustrated by series of numerical simulations.
