A Highway Tunnel Ventilation Control System Using Fuzzy Control

  • Kaoru Hirota

Abstract

In automobile highway tunnels, in order to maintain a suitable environment for drivers and traffic, visibility in the tunnel must be maintained, and the concentrations of poisonous substances including carbon monoxide must be kept at or below allowable levels. For this reason, in long tunnels and tunnels with heavy traffic, ventilation facilities are installed. When the ventilation facilities are run at full capacity, the environment in the tunnel is obviously adequately maintained, but this consumes a great deal of electric power. Consequently, a central problem in highway tunnel ventilation control systems is to keep the pollution concentration at or below the allowable level, and thus provide a safe environment for traffic, while consuming as little electricity as possible.
