Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The development of a Self-Tuning Neuro-Fuzzy Generalized Minimum Variance (GMV) controller is described. It uses fuzzy expert knowledge of the dynamic weightings to meet desired closed-loop stability and performance requirements. The controller is formulated in a polynomial system approach mixed with a Neuro-Fuzzy model and Fuzzy Self-Tuning mechanism. The proposed method is applied to a model of the Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor with Cooling Jacket and is compared with a PI controller, GMV controller with the correct model and a Fuzzy-PI controller. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
