Improvement of Fuzzy Control Methods

  • M. Mizumoto
Part of the International Series in Intelligent Technologies book series (ISIT, volume 3)


This chapter introduces improvement methods for fuzzy controls. At first, we introduce new aggregation operators for obtaining a fuzzy set of control actions. A number of new fuzzy reasoning methods such as product-sum-gravity method, min-sum-gravity method, (min/product)-max-gravity method and others are also introduced. Finally, we show several defuzzification procedures for obtaining a representative point of a fuzzy set of control actions.
