• We have designed and validated a new expert fuzzy control strategy.
• An intelligent tuning algorithm based on hysteresis logic is proposed.
• The tuning algorithm adjusts only one of the control singletons.
• Τhe proposed solution ensures an accurate control without increasing the number of fuzzy linguistic terms.
It is well known the fact that the design of a fuzzy control system is based on the human expert experience and control engineer knowledge regarding the controlled plant behavior. As a direct consequence, a fuzzy control system can be considered as belonging to the class of intelligent expert systems. The tuning procedure of a fuzzy controller represents a quite difficult and meticulous task, being based on prior data regarding good knowledge of the controlled plant. The complexity of the tuning procedure increases with the number of the fuzzy linguistic variables and, consequently, of the fuzzy inference rules and thus, the tuning process becomes more difficult. The paper presents a new design strategy for such expert fuzzy system, which improves their performance without increasing the number of fuzzy linguistic variables. The novelty consists in extending the classic structure of the fuzzy inference core with an intelligent module, which tunes one of the control singletons, providing a significant simplification of the design and implementation procedure. The proposed strategy implements a logical, not physical, supplementation of the linguistic terms associated to the controller output. Therefore, a fuzzy rules set with a reduced number of linguistic terms is used to implement the expert control system. This logical supplementation is based on an intelligent algorithm which performs a shifting of only one of the control singletons (the singleton associated to the SMALL_ linguistic variable), its value becoming variable, a fact that allows an accurate control and a better performance for the expert control system. The logic of this intelligent algorithm is to initially provide a high controller output, followed by a slowdown of the control signal near to the operating set point. The main advantage of the proposed expert control strategy is its simplicity: a reduced number of linguistic terms, combined with an intelligent tuning of a single parameter, can provide results as accurate as other more complex available solutions involving tuning of several parameters (well described by the technical literature). Also, a simplification of the preliminary off-line tuning procedure is performed by using a reduced set of fuzzy rules. The generality of the proposed expert control strategy allows its use for any other controlled process.
