Self-Organizing Adaptive Network-Based Fuzzy Intelligent Controller (SOANFIC)

H. R. Saghir and S. B. Shouraki

Abstract—Self-Organizing controller is a very good tool for providing a system with adaptive abilities. However there are some problems that are drawbacks of this controller. Firstly, although the process model needed for an SOC is an incremental one, it is still difficult to find and calculate such models in practice, and furthermore if an SOC is to be used, there is always a need for the knowledge of time lags in the process under control. The second problem is that in an SOC the process of updating the rules, assumes that there is only one sample in the past that is responsible for the current poor performance, while in fact more than one sample may be responsible and require correction. And the third problem is that if a fuzzy controller is used in the lower level of an SOC, the process of updating control rules would be a very demanding task that ends up in replacement of each rule with three new rules for each sample. So in addition to the need for a garbage collection algorithm to eliminate the redundant rules, the task of correction would be a time consuming process. To overcome these problems we introduce SOANFIC that is a model free controller and solves these problems. In addition to this SOANFIC is a very easily applicable controller that can be applied to MIMO systems as well as SISO ones.
