Basic Methods of Fuzzy Inference and Control

Part of the Control Engineering book series (CONTRENGIN)


For some plants whose mathematical models are diffucult to obtain, we can design a fuzzy controller based on the accumulated operating experience. Satisfactory control results can be obtained using this approach. This chapter discusses the basic methods of fuzzy inference and fuzzy control.
