The central point in designing a fuzzy system for modeling and control is the generation of a set of efficient and effective fuzzy rules. Generally, fuzzy rules can be generated either from heuristics or from experimental data. Heuristic fuzzy rule generation, as discussed in Chapter 1, consists of the following main steps:
  • Determination of the structure of the fuzzy systems. This includes mainly the selection of the inputs and outputs. Usually, a multi-input multi-output fuzzy systems can be decomposed into a number of multi-input single-output fuzzy systems.

  • Definition of linguistic terms and their fuzzy membership function for each fuzzy variables. If a Mamdani fuzzy system is designed, each input and output can be seen as a linguistic variable. Therefore, it is necessary to define the linguistic terms (e.g., Small, Medium, Large etc.) and their fuzzy membership function. Details about the definition of a linguistic variable is presented in Section 1.2.1.

  • Determination of fuzzy inference method. For example, for fuzzy mapping rules, the fuzzy Cartesian product can be used to define the fuzzy relation. Refer to Section 1.2.2.

  • Defuzzification. If the Mamdani type fuzzy rules are used, the fuzzy output derived from the fuzzy rule base should be defuzzified. Refer also to Section 1.2.2 for different defuzzification methods. If the Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy rules are used, the defuzzification is included in the fuzzy inference and a crisp output is obtained directly.
