Fuzzy Logic: A Practical Approach focuses on the processes and approaches involved in fuzzy logic, including fuzzy sets, numbers, and decisions. The book first elaborates on fuzzy numbers and logic, fuzzy systems on the job, and Fuzzy Knowledge Builder. Discussions focus on formatting the knowledge base for an inference engine, personnel detection system, using a knowledge base in an inference engine, fuzzy business systems, industrial fuzzy systems, fuzzy sets and numbers, and quantifying word-based rules. The text then elaborates on designing a fuzzy decision and Fuzzy Thought Amplifier for complex situations. Topics include origins of cognitive maps, Fuzzy Thought Amplifier, training a map to predict the future, introducing the Fuzzy Decision Maker, and merging interests. The publication takes a look at fuzzy associative memory, fuzzy sets as hypercube points, and disk files and descriptions, including Fuzzy Thought Amplifier, Fuzzy Decision Maker, and composing and creating a memory. The text is a valuable source of data for researchers interested in fuzzy logic.

Foundations of Fuzzy Control: A Practical Approach, 2ndEdition has been significantly revised and updated, with twonew chapters on Gain Scheduling Control and Neurofuzzy Modelling.It focuses on the PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) typecontroller which is the most widely used in industry andsystematically analyses several fuzzy PID control systems andadaptive control mechanisms. This new edition covers the basics of fuzzy control and builds asolid foundation for the design of fuzzy controllers, by creatinglinks to established linear and nonlinear control theory. Advancedtopics are also introduced and in particular, common sense geometryis emphasised. Key features Sets out practical worked through problems, examples and casestudies to illustrate each type of control system Accompanied by a website hosting downloadable MATLABprograms Accompanied by an online course on Fuzzy Control which istaught by the author. Students can access further materialand enrol at the companion website Foundations of Fuzzy Control: A Practical Approach, 2ndEdition is an invaluable resource for researchers,practitioners, and students in engineering. It is especiallyrelevant for engineers working with automatic control ofmechanical, electrical, or chemical systems.

A Practical Introduction to Fuzzy Logic using LISP

This book makes use of the LISP programming language to provide readers with the necessary background to understand and use fuzzy logic to solve simple to medium-complexity real-world problems. It introduces the basics of LISP required to use a Fuzzy LISP programming toolbox, which was specifically implemented by the author to “teach” the theory behind fuzzy logic and at the same time equip readers to use their newly-acquired knowledge to build fuzzy models of increasing complexity. The book fills an important gap in the literature, providing readers with a practice-oriented reference guide to fuzzy logic that offers more complexity than popular books yet is more accessible than other mathematical treatises on the topic. As such, students in first-year university courses with a basic tertiary mathematical background and no previous experience with programming should be able to easily follow the content. The book is intended for students and professionals in the fields of computer science and engineering, as well as disciplines including astronomy, biology, medicine and earth sciences. Software developers may also benefit from this book, which is intended as both an introductory textbook and self-study reference guide to fuzzy logic and its applications. The complete set of functions that make up the Fuzzy LISP programming toolbox can be downloaded from a companion book’s website.

*Introduces cutting-edge control systems to a wide readership of engineers and students *The first book on neuro-fuzzy control systems to take a practical, applications-based approach, backed up with worked examples and case studies *Learn to use VHDL in real-world applications Introducing cutting edge control systems through real-world applications Neural networks and fuzzy logic based systems offer a modern control solution to AC machines used in variable speed drives, enabling industry to save costs and increase efficiency by replacing expensive and high-maintenance DC motor systems. The use of fast micros has revolutionised the field with sensorless vector control and direct torque control. This book reflects recent research findings and acts as a useful guide to the new generation of control systems for a wide readership of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as practising engineers. The authors guide readers quickly and concisely through the complex topics of neural networks, fuzzy logic, mathematical modelling of electrical machines, power systems control and VHDL design. Unlike the academic monographs that have previously been published on each of these subjects, this book combines them and is based round case studies of systems analysis, control strategies, design, simulation and implementation. The result is a guide to applied control systems design that will appeal equally to students and professional design engineers. The book can also be used as a unique VHDL design aid, based on real-world power engineering applications.

This unusual book addresses a number of common control problems from an experimental engineering perspective, using low-cost, laboratory systems. In each case a laboratory set-up and experiments are described, along with theoretical context and results from implementation. It therefore complements conventional theoretical books and textbooks. It is highly international, emanating from a European Tempus project (IMPACT). In addition to its value to teachers of control, as well as students, it will be of interest to practising control engineers seeking new insight to their own practical problems.

Since the late 1980s, a large number of very user-friendly tools for fuzzy control, fuzzy expert systems, and fuzzy data analysis have emerged. This has changed the character of this area and started the area of `fuzzy technology'. The next large step in the development occurred in 1992 when almost independently in Europe, Japan and the USA, the three areas of fuzzy technology, artificial neural nets and genetic algorithms joined forces under the title of `computational intelligence' or `soft computing'. The synergies which were possible between these three areas have been exploited very successfully. Practical Applications of Fuzzy Sets focuses on model and real applications of fuzzy sets, and is structured into four major parts: engineering and natural sciences; medicine; management; and behavioral, cognitive and social sciences. This book will be useful for practitioners of fuzzy technology, scientists and students who are looking for applications of their models and methods, for topics of their theses, and even for venture capitalists who look for attractive possibilities for investments.

Textiles and computing have long been associated. High volume and low profit margins of textile products have driven the industry to invest in high technology, particularly in the area of data interpretation and analysis. Thus, it is virtually inevitable that soft computing has found a home in the textile industry. Contained in this volume are six chapters discussing various aspects of soft computing in the field of textiles and apparel.
