Abstract

To conform to strict environmental safety regulations, pH control is used in many industrial applications. For this purpose modern process industries are increasingly relying on intelligent and adaptive control strategies. On one hand intelligent control strategies try to imitate human way of thinking and decision making using artificial intelligence (AI) based techniques such as fuzzy logic whereas on the other hand adaptive mechanism ensures adjusting of the controller parameters. A self-organized fuzzy logic controller (SOFLC) is intelligent in nature and adapts its performance to meet the figure of merit. This paper presents an optimized SOFLC for pH control using performance correction table. The fuzzy adaptation mechanism basically involves a penalty for the output membership functions if the controller performance is poor. The evolutionary genetic algorithm (GA) is used for optimization of input-output scaling factors of the conventional fuzzy logic controller (FLC) as well as elements of the fuzzy performance correction table. The resulting optimized SOFLC is compared with optimized FLC for servo and regulatory control. Comparison indicate superior performance of SOFLC over FLC in terms of much reduced integral of squared error (ISE), maximum overshoot and undershoot, and increased speed of response.
