Many schemes for the employment of neural networks in control systems have been proposed [9] and some practical applications have also been made [2]. It is possible to apply a neural network to just about every conceivable control problem, however in many cases, although of interest, the network might not be the best or even a good solution, due to its relatively complex nonlinear operation. A neural network is in essence a nonlinear mapping device and in this respect, at the present time, most of the reported work describing the use of neural networks in a control environment is concerned solely with the problem of process modelling or system identification.
