Phase plane analysis tools for a class of fuzzy control systems

Harris, C.J. and Moore, C.G. (1992) Phase plane analysis tools for a class of fuzzy control systems At 1st Int. Conf. on Fuzzy Systems. , 511--518.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Although fuzzy controllers have been fully applied with success, one of the reasons they are not used more generally could be the lack of analysis tools. This paper describes a performance prediction and design tool, applicable to a class of systems that have quasi second order behaviour, which is analogous to the algebraic phase plane approach. Using this technique the response of a rule based system can be investigated and the influence of individual ruls on overall performance can be determined, allowing a stability analysis to be carried out directly on the rule based system. Implications for controller design are considered. The tools described are supported by a software package written at Southampton University and used by two UK Ministry of Defence establishments for autonomous vehicle control research.
